AN ASIAN AMERICAN FILM THING is a celebration of Asian- American filmmakers by screening their shorts. For this month we celebrate animations and music videos! We want to focus on shorts that show Asian- Americans in a light that the media usually never portrays us in. This is also a motivating and inspiring event for Asian- American filmmakers to tell their story even if it's unpolished. This night will explore Identity and the power of visual storytelling. There will also be a musical treat at the end of the event!
Tonight is hosted by: Angel Yau and Jen Kwok
