2009 Asian American International Film Festival
The Asian American International Film Festival is the first and longest running festival in the country devoted to showcasing films created by media artists of Asian descent and about the Asian community.
Date: 7/23/2009-7/26/2009, All Day
Address: 260 W 23rd St, Manhattan
Founded in 1978, AAIFF harbors a unique curatorial vision. More than an expression of collective identity, the festival is anchored by the distinct contributions of its members. It is a platform for filmmakers of all backgrounds to develop the constructs of Asian cinema and cultivate the next generation of talent. 32 years after its inception, AAIFF continues to be a leading showcase for Asian American film and video, placing a substantial focus on local and independent works and working to enrich New York’s Asian arts community.
This year, AAIFF will present a showcase of original feature films, short films, documentaries, and other works by artists from throughout the world. Beginning July 23 and running through July 26, AAIFF 09 will feature ten of the year’s best narrative and documentary feature films at our new Chelsea location and over 30 short films at the new Museum of Chinese in America. In addition to the screenings, the festival will also conduct panel discussions, Q&A sessions, workshops and awards.
AAIFF 09 will reach an audience of more than 7,000 during four days of programs, plus thousands more during our follow-up screenings in New York’s Asian American communities and our National Festival Tour. Hundreds of thousands of viewers and readers follow the festival in local, national and international media coverage.
This year, the Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF) will be screening feature length presentations at Clearview Chelsea Cinemas.
