Asian Am Film Festival Opens Tonight


15 July 2010

Tonight, a rare thing happens: I put on a dress, I go downtown.  It’s Opening Night of the annual Asian American International Film Festival.  33 years strong and still kicking.  The staff (I happen to know) work their butts off, and it shows…

Films screen throughout the weekend into next Wednesday night: acclaimed features and shorts from all over the world, by and about people of Asian descent.  At Chelsea Clearview Cinemas and the Quad, mostly, with a few programs at the new Museum of the Chinese in America (MoCA) in Chinatown.  There’s a special “New Taiwainese Cinema” series that’s supposed to be excellent.

Check it out — remember, movie theaters are air conditioned!
