Organized by Asian CineVision, it’s the first and longest-running festival dedicated to showcasing the moving image work by media artists of Asian descent for and about the Asian diaspora experience. There are some brilliant compelling Filipino Feature Films and Documentaries showcased this year to watch too — Arumpac’s Aswang, Ramona Diaz’s A Thousand Cuts and Raya Martin’s Death of Nintendo! Plus many more! Grateful to all of you!
Join us as we intimately experience fire breathing on the hawker-lined streets of Saigon, the waters of Manilla amidst the Philippine’s drug war, and Filipino karaoke in a beloved restaurant in National City, California. These films illuminate the quietness in each moment to create portraits of family, places, and connection.
