DC APA Film is proud to announce its partnership with Hyphen magazine for our 10th Annual Film Festival on October 1 to October 10, 2009. Tuesday, October 6 will be “Sponsored by Hyphen Magazine Night” and we will be giving away Hyphen merchandise such as a one-year subscription, t-shirts and issues of the magazine.
Like APA Film, Hyphen is produced by an all-volunteer staff. Hyphen is a magazine about Asian America for the culturally and politically savvy who want substantive and well-researched articles about complicated issues that affect Asian Americans.
Unlike other Asian American publications, Hyphen is more political and news oriented magazine, with stories about social justice issues and progressive politics. Hyphen also covers pop culture and the arts, but is more interested in underground independent artists over established ones. Hyphen was founded in 2003 by a group of Bay Area Asian American journalists, artists and activists.
On October 6, APA Film will be showing many of the best short films at the U.S. Navy Memorial Burke Theater in Washington D.C.’s Penn Quarter area. A number of the filmmakers will be flying in for the screening of their films. You can meet and talk to them after the screenings.
In addition to meeting the filmmakers, you’ll also have a chance to win cool merchandise.
Mark your calendar for this date because it is guaranteed to be a fun and exciting night!
