A Little Bee Told Me . . . To Check Out the 2009 Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF)!

Posted Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009 at 6:02 pm by Neighborbee in Cultural Bees. More in 10011

The festival starts tomorrow so be sure to consult their schedule. Join us in checking out Children of Invention, which we missed last month at the BAMcinemaFEST (covered by Kristin here). There are a variety of genres (documentary, shorts, experimental) from the U.S. and abroad to choose from. Short on cash? Volunteering is a sure way to get into one or two.

AAIFF is the first and longest running festival in the country devoted to showcasing films created by media artists of Asian descent and about the Asian community. Founded in 1978, AAIFF continues to be a leading showcase for Asian American film and video. In addition to panels, workshops, and film receptions, this year’s festival will feature the work of over 50 filmmakers during the weekend of July 23-26 across three locations: the Clearview Chelsea Cinemas, SVA Theater, & the newly renovated Museum of Chinese in America. For more information on AAIFF ’09, please visit www.aaiff.org.

Asian CineVision, Inc. is a not-for-profit national media arts organization dedicated to the development, promotion and preservation of film and video arts by and about people of Asian descent. Founded in 1976 by Hong Kong cinema legend Tsui Hark, Oscar-nominated director Christine Choy, Danny Yung, and Peter Chow, ACV began as a media activism organization. The organization continues to serve the Asian American community by promoting the works of Asian and Asian American filmmakers, and providing a window to the diverse experiences and livelihoods of the Asian diaspora. For more information on ACV, please visit www.asiancinevision.org.
