The largest Asian American film festival on the East Coast kicks off at 7 p.m. Thursday at International House in West Philadelphia.
The eighth annual Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival will promote and explore Asian identity through a modern artistic lens. Running through Nov. 22, it features more than 60 films, filmmaker-led discussions, and programs on music, culture, and food. Guest speakers include actor Peter Shinkoda, from Netflix’s Daredevil, and spoken-word artist Michelle Meyers.
“My idea has been to grow PAAFF from a city festival to a regional festival,” said its director, Rob Buscher. “As our community continues to grow, the festival is more symbolic of that.”
