Our big brother/big sister festival in New York is busy launching its 31st year!
The first festival of its kind, the Asian American International Film Festival is the premiere showcase dedicated to screening innovative films by independent artists of Asian descent.
The AAIFF ‘08 opens with PRINCESS OF NEBRASKA, Wayne Wang’s moving homage to the post-Tiananmen Square generation of Chinese youth, and closes with Jessica Yu’s hilarious narrative feature debut PING PONG PLAYA. Throughout the week experience the Festival by going to film premieres, shorts screenings, music videos parties, and more.
This year, the AAIFF ’08, with NYU’s A/P/A Institute, proudly unveils NEW LANDSCAPES: MEDIA AND ITS ADAPTATIONS, an inaugural interdisciplinary series of panels, conversations, master classes, and events exploring new visions in Asian and Asian American media, culture and politics. Artists, intellectuals, and filmmakers will engage in discussions that forecast the frontier of contemporary culture.
