SDAFF – Closing Night

Tonight is closing… It's been so great – a different world, where all the emotions of the world are laid bare at 24 frames per second. We regulars are even starting to recognize each other. Something like this can't live forever (nor, my vacation) but, as they say, there's always next year! And unlike many sports teams, we know it will be bigger and better.

Remind me to get there early for West 32nd tonight. Maybe I'll buy out the remaining inventory of tee shirts for gifts?

Hope you got a taste of the excitement of this event….

The 8th Annual San Diego Asian Film Festival is October 11-18, 2007

John Cho Confirmed to Attend WEST 32ND Screening Tonight

The San Diego Asian Film Festival is proud to end its eighth season with the West Coast premiere of WEST 32nd, a thriller, action film set in New York's Koreatown with an all-star cast including John Cho (Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle) and Grace Park (Battlestar Galactica). Cho portrays an attorney who takes on a pro bono murder case that leads him into the dark underworld of Koreatown.

Cho and other actors from WEST 32nd are scheduled to attend tonight, along with director Michael Kang and former San Diego actor, Chil Kong.

Anyone with a closing night film ticket or All-Festival Pass is invited to join us for hosted drinks and appetizers during the pre-closing night reception at the UltraStar Hazard Center lobby. The reception begins at 5:30 PM and the film starts at 7.
