aaiff event plugs

Thanks to everyone who came out to the In Focus conversation with Justin Lin last night, part of the Asian American International Film Festival. Aside from running short on time, it was a good talk, with some great insights from Justin, Sung Kang and Roger Fan about their careers and Asian American cinema in general.

This is kind of short notice, but here are a couple of other noteworthy AAIFF events happening today... Today at 2:30pm, check out this great panel Secret Identity: Asian Americans in Comics. Asian American comic book creators will share their work while discussing Asian representation in comics. The panel includes legendary writer Larry Hama (Wolverine, G.I. Joe), indie sensation Christine Norrie (Hopeless Savages, Breaking Up), Pornsak Pichetshote (Vertigo Comics), and filmmaker-turned-comics writer Greg Pak (Incredible Hulk, World War Hulk). Should be a really interesting discussion for the fangeeks in all of us. It's happening today at 2:30pm at the Asia Society. For more information, go here.

Tonight, don't miss the New York premiere of Chris Chan Lee's Undoing, a noir-esque crime drama set in Los Angeles' Koreatown, starring Sung Kang. I believe there's also an afterparty at White Rabbit (145 E. Houston between Eldridge & Forsyth Streets) presented by the M.A.T.H. Club. Good times.

Also, be sure to check out the festival's online cinema journal Cinevue, with all sorts of great interviews, essays and persectives. Lots of good reading there, so take a look.
