launching the philadelphia asian american film festival

This info landed in my mailbox a couple of weeks ago, but I completely lost track of it... This fall in Philadelphia, they'll be launching the 1st annual Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival. They're looking for a few good volunteers to help out with the process. See here:
PAAFF will be a 4 day film festival featuring some of the top movies directed, produced and starring Asian Pacific Americans (APAs) in the premier venues in Philadelphia. PAAFF will be a place to network with filmmakers and actors, learn about moviemaking through Q & A's and workshops, and explore relevant topics pertaining to APAs in film through panel discussions.

As the first and only Asian American Film Festival in Philadelphia, we are a unique entity. Our city and state are home to one of the largest APA populations in the country, but lacks in the diversity of events that cater to APAs. PAAFF will be an event that will allow the voices of APAs to be heard through a wide spectrum of films and programs that will be inclusive to all Philadelphians.

PAAFF films will explore the Asian-American identity and experience. This is a celebration of films that are distinctively independent, mainstream, introspective, hilarious, action packed, spine tingling, romantic and defying categorization and expectations.

Currently we are looking for a Web designer.

We don't have much money, but the volunteers will get all access passes to the film festival and special recognition on our website & programming guide.

They can contact Joe Kim at joe@phillyasianfilmfest.org.
This is a great opportunity to get involved and help shape an important, landmark event in its beginning stages. I'm always happy to see new Asian American film festivals pop up in cities around the country. Philadelphia, you're awesome.
