The Seattle Asian American Film Festival will showcase works by northwest Asian American filmmakers, as well as films from across the country dealing with Asian American people, issues, and themes. All screenings will take place at the Tateuchi Story Theatre at the Wing Luke Museum.
Opening night features one feature film, three shorts, and an opening night party! Opening night shorts include CINEMETROPOLIS by Martin Tran & Daniel Strothman. Inspired by the music of the Blue Scholars. Even after the popcorn is finished and the lights come back on, do we ever really leave the cinema? A finalist in the Blue Scholars Short Film Competition, CINEMETROPOLIS is a love letter to the movies, hip hop, Seattle, and our childhood imagination.
Opening night feature film is”A Lot Like You” by Eliaichi Kimaro. The film won Best Documentary at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival and Top 10 Audience Choice Award at SIFF. The film will be followed by a discussion panel with Kimaro, LeiLani Nishime (Assistant Professor of Communication, University of Washington) and Wes Kim (Director of the Northwest Asian American Film Festival 2003–2007).
