Bring the annual Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF) to your school, community event, corporate affinity group, film club, budding festival, or other independent film screening event! If you missed the AAIFF in July or are located somewhere far from NYC, you can still take advantage of AAIFF’s curatorial excellence and see the best in new Asian/Asian American independent cinema.
How? Via the ACV National Festival Tour. Each year, select films from AAIFF–both feature-length and curated shorts programs–are available for rental at reasonable prices year-round. A generous percentage of the rental fee goes directly to the filmmakers, so your participation in The Tour is a great way to support emerging Asian American artists.
Visit our National Festival Tour page to view full film and program descriptions, including Our Recommendations and programs by subject area. And join our group on Facebook so you can get updates on other groups renting Tour programs around the country.
Welcome to CAL POLY Chinese Students Association, who will be screening our FOR YOUTH BY YOUTH program at their annual Asian American Film Festival November 7-9. 2008.
