Come join us at the next “Asia After Dark” at the Freer Gallery on Thursday, September 3 at 6:30pm! We are honored to have been asked to curate the film program for the latest edition of Asia After Dark. The theme, East Meets West, is a unique program of shorts from some of the best APA filmmakers from our first ten years.

We will have additional retrospective programs during the 2009 Festival which runs October 1-10 at theaters throughout Washington, D.C. Click here for the list of films that will be screening continuously in the Meyer Auditorium during the event. Some films have not screened in Washington, D.C. since their premiere 10 years ago with us!

Showcasing Whistler’s Peacock Room, the latest “Asia After Dark” will include a text-message scavenger hunt hosted by The Pink Line Project, a specialty drink called The Golden Peacock, and delicious food from Bangkok Joe’s and Mie N Yu in Georgetown and Asia Nine in Chinatown.

Featured in the Freer Courtyard will be new wave dance by Boogie Bots, contestants from MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew, and music from DJs Yellow Fever.
