Asian American International Film Festival — Aug 1st - Aug 11th, 2024

Interactive Media Gallery

The projects at the third annual Interactive Media Gallery and first ever in-person exhibit, reflect the Asian American diasporic experience as essentially defined by these traits of liminality, disappearance, and becoming, embodied by the loss of original culture in both their material presences, as well as in how they are embodied and shaped by distance from elders and ancestors. The experience is imagined as generative, taking the lost elements of an identity not as absolute, but as a making-way for new practices, cultural worlds, and essentially diasporic and transnational Asian American narratives.


The Interactive Media Gallery is an in-person exhibition held at Hana House during the following:

  • July 28, 3:00pm – 7:00pm ET
  • July 29, 12:00pm – 4:00pm ET

[Note that there will be an in-person filmmaker Q&A and mixer following the July 28 exhibition.]


Timed tickets are available during the above mentioned time slots at 30-minute intervals;  please note the ticket timing only refers to your entry window, not the maximum amount of time you are permitted to stay in the gallery.

As such, there are a limited amount of tickets available and we encourage you to purchase them in advance. Please click the link below to purchase tickets directly from our box office website, Elevent.
