About Us

The Asian Cut was created in 2022 out of a desire to see more films from Asia and the Asian diaspora represented in the Western film discourse in a thoughtful and authentic manner. The site's founders, Alisha Mughal and Rachel Ho, became acquainted as writers for Exclaim! Magazine and quickly bonded over a love of coffee and long-form writing. Rose Ho joined the team after meeting Rachel and Alisha at the Toronto Film Critics Association's Pre-TIFF22 Cocktail Party, and would later recruit her former colleague, Jericho Tadeo, to complete the TAC quartet.


We decided to be the change we wanted to see in the film world. So we created a space to not only highlight Asian and Asian diaspora films, but showcase filmmakers of Asian descent. We also hope that this will be a place for Asian journalists and film critics (established and those just starting out) to write about the films, filmmakers and film history that they feel connected to.
