DC APA Film Updates

The staff of APA Film has recently come back from the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival re-energized and revitalized. We are now accepting submissions for its 9th annual film festival this fall. We will fairly consider all submissions that are directed by, written by, produced by, starring or about Asian Americans and Asian diaspora populations. We are offering submission fee discounts for films postmarked before the early deadline and submitted electronically through our withoutabox site at http://www.withoutabox.com/login/5151. Please submit early and online to take advantage of these discounts.

Deadlines (postmark):
May 2, 2008 (Early)
May 31, 2008 (Late)

There are several screenings of Asian and Asian American films coming out in the metropolitan Washington DC area. Benson Lee's Planet B-Boy is opening at Landmark E Street this Friday. Come out and support an amazing film that played at the Tribeca Film Festival and had a sold out showing at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival.

The Korean Film Festival is starting up again. In the next few months, you can see some of the best in Korean cinema at the AFI Silver and the Smithsonian's Freer Gallery, two theaters that have been very generous in allowing us to hold screenings at their venues for our film festival.

It's a busy month but try to go out of your way to catch some of the films being screened before they're gone. Also, can't forget to give big shouts out to Angry Asian Man and Asian American Film for their continuing support and help!
