13th chicago asian american showcase

Heads up, Chicago film fans... The 13th Asian American Showcase is going down right now, bringing you the best in Asian American film, music, visual and literary events. Things kicked off on Friday night, and run through April 24 at the Gene Siskel Film Center. Come and check out some of latest and best in Asian American cinema, including Amyn Kaderali's Kissing Cousins, Regina Park's Never Perfect, Richard Wong's Option 3, Francis Hseuh and Steven Hahn's Pretty To Think So, Michael Kang's West 32nd and Ron Morales' Santa Mesa, among other features, as well as some kickass shorts programs.

I've got a fond place in my heart for the Chicago Asian American Showcase—it was the first Asian American film festival I ever attended, waaaaay back in the day. My first taste. Now you can call me a festival junkie. For more information about the festival, and to see the full lineup of events and screenings, go to the website here.
