asian cinevision's national festival tour 08/09

You know I love a good film festival. I think it's the best way to see all the latest and greatest stuff happening in Asian American cinema. But sometimes, you just can't make it out to a film festival near you. So... Asian CineVision is bringing the film festival to you! ACV proudly presents the National Festival Tour 08/09, coming to a school/library/museum/community group near you.

The only traveling festival of its kind in the country, the National Festival Tour annually showcases carefully curated selections of this year's best narrative, documentary, short, and experimental films from the Asian American International Film Festival '08. You can rent a feature or shorts program for your classroom seminar or lecture, your student group event, or your corporate affinity group.

Program a feature narrative like John Kwon's Always Be Boyz, Seng Tat Liew's Flower in the Pocket, Li Lin Wee's Gone Shopping or Richard Wong's Option 3. Or maybe a documentary like Ann Kaneko's Against the Grain: An Artist's Survival Guide to Peru. Or a number of really wonderful shorts, conveniently curated into thematic programs. Lots of great stuff there to program a festival around.

This is a really cool and rare opportunity to bring Asian American film programming to your community—perhaps something your community doesn't always get to experience. Organize an Asian American film festival in your living room! With a percentage of the rental fees going to the filmmakers, it's also a great way for your organization to directly support Asian American artists. For a full list of films and prices, go here.
