San Diego Asian Cultural Festival

Had a great time at the 3rd Annual San Diego Asian Cultural Festival at Liberty Station this last Saturday! We had a strong contingent representing Korean culture. The San Diego Korean Daily and our own kkonnect.net had a booth and was busy throughout the day spreading the word about Korean culture and offering select items like the unique tee shirts you can see people sporting in the photos below.

There were Korean martial artists, a Korean cooking class with Cathlyn Choi, and the colorful and impressive San Diego Korean Pungmui School. And that was just the Korean part! And I must say that everyone was respectful and pleasant throughout the day.

Be sure to put this on your calendar for next year!!

Video from Spring Showcase – The Kite

Last night was great with a free showing for members, one of the many benefits!

We saw Patang (The Kite) About a family that is reunited during the big festival of the kites in an Indian town. It look seven years to make, and 90% of the cast are non-actors. It is an amazing film!

Then we had a Skype Q and A with the director and two of the the principle actors to take questions from the audience. I think everyone learned a lot about the film.

See a video the ace SDAFF team made in just one day to get a feeling of what it was like to be there. Plus, there is a recap of what is coming up today and the last day tomorrow. You simply can not miss A Simple Life playing today and tomorrow!

See The Kite video am mre
