Asian American Film Thing

Saturday, August 20, 2022
7 – 10PM

The long-running AAPI short film festival, ASIAN AMERICAN FILM THING, is seeking submissions from AAPI filmmakers to screen on August 20, 2022 at 7:00 pm at the renowned Littlefield performance space in Brooklyn, NYC. This August’s show will be hosted by founder, producer and comedian Angel Yau (BBC, Story Collider, Award-winning filmmaker, AzN PoP!) and producer/comedian Kate Moran (Asian Comedy Fest, Yahoo)

The mission of this event is to have a safe space for AAPI filmmakers to voice their stories and receive meaningful feedback on both new work and works-in-progress. Says show founder Angel Yau, “We want to focus on shorts that show Asian- Americans as the main characters, as the voice, as someone that Hollywood usually never portrays us in.”

The evening will also include brief introductions by the filmmakers themselves and several live performances. Featuring performances by: Juicy Liu, Kurt Cruz, and improv from Asian AF!
