announcing: 30th asian american international film festival

The Asian American International Film Festival in New York, presented by Asian CineVision, celebrates its 30th year this summer, July 19-28. That's right, thirty years of Asian American cinema. Priority ticket sales for ACV and Asia Society members begin today, June 11. General advance ticket sales begin June 18th. The complete schedule of programs should be up and running soon at the AAIFF website, but for now...

The festival will kick off with the New York premiere of Justin Lin's Bruce Lee-themed mockumentary Finishing the Game, then a Centerpiece Presentation of Chen Shi-Zheng's drama Dark Matter, and round things out with the Closing Night Presentation of Gina Kim's Never Forever. The festival will also pay tribute to trailblazing Hong Kong director Patrick Tam, with a retrospective that includes two rarely-seen classics that helped launch the Hong Kong New Wave, The Sword and Nomad. Mark your calendars, New York, because July is going to be hot.
