Boston Asian American Film Festival (BAAFF) empowers Asian Americans through film by showcasing Asian American experiences and serving as a resource to filmmakers and the Greater Boston Community.
WHAT: Indiegogo project: Boston Asian American Film Festival 2014
Every year, we strive to be better than the last, and we intend to make BAAFF 2014 one of the best experiences possible. With your help, we can make this festival a memorable event for both general attendees and special guests. The funds raised through this campaign will go towards bringing filmmakers and actors to Boston to share with festival-goers their vision and experiences.
WHEN: Deadline to contribute is Tuesday, October 21, 2014 (7:27am PDT).
Our interest resides in the passion to bring Asian American films to the public and to educate them on the experiences that Asian Americans face in society. There are many issues in our society that are not being recognized such as gentrification and discrimination; and we are here to help raise awareness to these concerns. Bringing filmmakers to Boston and supporting Asian American filmmakers will ensure we deepen the conversations that take place.
