nwaaff, discount tickets, and the pfp

Hey Seattle! The 2007 Northwest Asian American Film Festival, Washington State's largest showcase for Asian American films and videos, is happening this week, January 25-28 in Seattle. They've got a fantastic schedule of Asian American cinema, and this is your chance to check it out. NWAAFF would like to invite you, the angry Asian readers of this website, to be a part of the festivities. So you guys get the group rate. This means that you can attend evening screenings for $7 (normally $10) and afternoon screenings for $5 (normally $7). Anyone who mentions "Angry Asian Man" at the box office will automatically receive the discount. Also, anyone who wants to buy tickets in advance online can select the group rate rather than the general admission. Cool, right? So get angry, and support some Asian American cinema. Here's an article on the festival: A five-day festival of films and fun. And here: Lights, camera... Asians. Go here for more info.

Oh yeah... my pal Maggie (we go way back) implores me to tell you that the Pork Filled Players, Seattle's own Asian American sketch comedy group, will be performing before the screening of Sung H. Kim's Mighty Warriors of Comedy, a documentary about the 18 Mighty Mountain Warriors. Now you know. Check out the film, see some comedy, have a few laughs.
