New Festival Dates Are Announced

July 27, 2020

Dear Friends of ACV,

Asian CineVision is excited to announce that the 43rd Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF43) will take place October 1st-11th, 2020, in an entirely online format for the very first time!

This is a challenging year for everyone, and we find it more important than ever to provide a space for critical reflection. After meticulous research and discussion, our Board and staff has decided that shifting to an online festival is the best and most accessible way to celebrate the power of cinema while keeping our audience, staff, and artists safe.

Though there’s a certain magic that can only exist within an in-person festival, we are excited for the opportunity to bring the conversation to a broader audience, and to explore new ways to experience Asian diaspora storytelling. Our programming has always worked to push boundaries, empower marginalized voices, and spark a dialogue. We will continue to do so uncompromisingly for AAIFF43.

More details on how to participate will be shared in August, while the full lineup will be made available starting in September. To stay updated, connect with us through our newsletterFacebookTwitter, and Instagram.

If it is within your means, please consider making a contribution to Asian CineVision. It is a difficult time for all arts and culture nonprofits across the country, and your support is what makes our film festival possible. Every dollar counts as we work to produce AAIFF43 and build resources for independent API filmmakers.

See you in the Fall!

Team ACV
