20th Annual Asian American Showcase “celebrating the Asian American woman” April 3-16

It’s been twenty years, and “Asian American Showcase” is still going strong as a platform for new work by established and emerging Asian American filmmakers.

This year we put the spotlight on female directors, with five films directed by women, and three more focusing on women. The festival opens with the atmospheric, award-winning neo-noir MAN FROM RENO, starring Ayako Fujitani, and closes with the action-packed documentary 9-MAN, with director Ursula Liang in person.

The art exhibit “Flash,” curated by Haley Jung and critically examining the sexploitation of the Asian American woman in mass media, will be on view in our Gallery/Café from April 3 through July. The public is invited to the opening reception on Friday, April 3, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
