Well, it's that time of year again! I took the week off, so I could see most of the best films and documentaries. This year for the first time, there will be screenings at UCR (University of California at Riverside) Home of Daynah! 🙂
First night was awesome! Featuring Ping Pong Playa – an Asian-American comedy by Jessica Yu, staring Jimmy Tsai, Roger Fan and Smith Cho… I have pictures on my Flickr featured below.
And here are Opening Night photos from the SDAFF Staff Photographers on Flickr
The San Diego Asian Film Festival is an annual event of the San Diego Asian Film Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and promoting the diverse Pan Asian experience through the media arts.
We’ve been around since 2000, premiering films from around the world. Our emphasis is on Asian American cinema, but we also showcase international films, along with shorts, animation, experimental films and music videos. Along with films, patrons will be able to meet and speak with filmmakers and actors, enjoy meaningful discussions, and enjoy nightly parties.
Most of all, we pride ourselves in being a well-organized, friendly festival made of people who are passionate about life and learning.
The 9th Annual San Diego Asian Film Festival takes place:
October 9-16, 2008 in San Diego
October 21-23, 2008 in Riverside
All screenings and panel discussions during October 9-16 will be at the UltraStar Mission Valley at Hazard Center, located off the 163 and Friars Road. Hazard Center has plenty of free parking, shops, restaurants, and is accessible by Trolley:
