The 29th Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival will be presented May 2 – May 12, 2013 at the Directors Guild of America; CGV Cinemas; and The Art Theatre of Long Beach. A key highlight of the month-long Asian Pacific Heritage Month activities, the Film Festival is produced by Visual Communications, the nation’s premier Asian Pacific American media arts center, and enjoys broad support from cinema artists and audiences alike.
Since 1983, the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival has presented nearly 4,000 films and videos by Asian international and Asian Pacific American artists, and additionally features seminars and panels, in-person guest appearances, and filmmaker awards. The Film Festival continues to be the largest festival of its kind in Southern California and is the premier showcase for the best and brightest of Asian American and Asian international cinema.
