Seattle! This is for you. Film and community come together again for the 2014 Seattle Asian American Film Festival, a four-day showcase of feature-length and short format films by and about Asian Americans across North America, with an emphasis on filmmakers from the Pacific Northwest. It's going down next week, February 6-9 at Columbia city's Ark Lodge Cinemas.
They've got a really great lineup, starting with the February 6 opening night screening and party for the hit Sundance feature documentary Linsanity, director Evan Jackson Leong's behind-the-scenes look at the rise of NBA superstar Jeremy Lin, and his incredible and unlikely underdog story.
Here's the full rundown of SAAFF programs:
