UPDATE 7/17/2012: Congrats to the winners: Jacky C, Jennifer B, and Lysabeth L!
8Asians is proud to be a media partner for the 35th annual Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF) in New York City. AAIFF is the first and longest running festival in the U.S. to showcase the best in independent Asian and Asian American cinema. This year, the Festival will run from July 25 to August 5, with screenings at Clearview Chelsea Cinemas, Asia Society and Museum, and The Museum of Chinese in America.
“On the event of our 35th year we honor our roots–showcasing the best and most recent achievements by Asian American film and video makers while looking to future by nurturing emerging talents and embracing transformative technologies” says ACV Executive Director John C. Woo. More than half of the Festival selection is made in the US or is a co-production. Many are first time directors, including actress turned director Lily Mariye’s MODEL MINORITY, telling the story of an underprivileged teenage girl surviving the treacherous world of peer pressure, drug dealers and dysfunctional families in L.A. There are also a number of returning filmmakers, including H.P. Mendoza’s horror film I AM A GHOST, about a girl trapped in a repetitive routine in Victorian times. And Rich Wong’s raunchy new film YES, WE’RE OPEN, a sharp-witted comedy about a modern couple testing their boundaries of love, sex and honesty. “We are extremely happy to see the number of Asian American filmmakers making quality work in a truly independent fashion which AAIFF continues to champion,” adds Martha Tien, AAIFF Program Director.
