aurora asian film festival shuts down

I received an email the other day from the author of this article, informing me that after ten years, the Aurora Asian Film Festival is shutting down: Film fest fades to black. Citing departing sponsors, a lack of volunteers and stagnant attendance, the Aurora Asian/Pacific Community Partnership announced its decision to suspend the annual film festival for 2008. That's too bad. If I haven't made it too obvious, I'm a huge sucker for Asian American film festival, both big and small. I love them. But to be completely honest, I don't think I was even aware that there was an Aurora Asian Film Festival (it's in Colorado). Publicity might not have been the festival's strongest suit. I hope the festival is able to restructure itself, regroup, and return again at a later date...
