Film Still from Dirty Sock

This FREE shorts program offers a diverse selection of comedy shorts starring AAPI actors and comedians.

Filmmakers expected in attendance for post-film Q&A.

3 Minutes
At a local speed-dating event, a couple makes all-too-honest assessments of each other over the course of a three-minute conversation.

Dirty Sock
A man tries to prevent the future soiling of his sock using a digital time machine app.

Moby Dick
A comedic take at Korean culture, where circumcision is considered a necessity. Based on the filmmaker’s own high-school aged experience.

First Date
Deepak meets his future bride for the first time. She’s not exactly what he expected but everything he ever wanted.

Almost Asian
A comedy webseries created by Katie Malia that follows a half-Asian actress’ everyday life in Los Angeles. Each episode polaroids Katie’s personal and professional struggles with tongue-in-cheek humor as she awkwardly attempts to maneuver through life as a half-Asian woman.
