If you're headed to Park City as an Asian American film fan, join the small community collective of folks who make up the "Asian Pacific Film Experience" and celebrate our filmmakers and stories. On Sunday, come on out to the annual APA Filmmakers Reception at their new location (what happened to the Chinese restaurant?) to mix and mingle with filmmakers and festivalgoers:

So yeah, things came together sort of last minute, but it looks like I'm going to Park City. For sure, I'll be at the reception, but other than that, I'll be trying hard to scrounge up tickets to anything and everything. If anyone's got the hook up... hook it up!
