New England's Largest Asian American Film Festival
Boston Asian American Film Festival (BAAFF) empowers Asian Americans through film by showcasing Asian American experiences and serving as a resource to filmmakers and the Greater Boston Community. BAAFF is a production of the Asian American Resource Workshop (AARW). BAAFF builds on 35-years of AARW supporting the Asian American Community through film.
The mission of the Asian American Resource Workshop, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is to work for the empowerment of the Asian Pacific American community to achieve its full participation in U.S. society. AARW is a member-based organization that seeks to document the diverse Asian Pacific American histories, experiences and social conditions. Our resources and activities are used to respond to current Asian Pacific American issues and to promote the Asian American identity.
WHY SPONSOR BAAFF?
Boston Asian American Film Festival (BAAFF) is the largest Asian American film festival in New England. Our interest resides in the passion to bring Asian American films to the public and to educate them on the experiences that Asian Americans face in society. There are many issues in our society that are not being recognized such as gentrification and discrimination; and we are here to help raise awareness to these concerns.
As a non-profit organization, we are a relatively small team of extremely dedicated volunteers with a tremendously limited budget that goes towards marketing, venues, inviting special guests, producers/directors and more. Your help will not only help us financially, it will help us inspirationally. If you have any questions regarding sponsorship, please contact: email@example.com

BAAFF in the News
by Monica Castillo | DIG BOSTON
October 23, 2013
"Coming to town for its fifth year, the Boston Asian American Film Festival will play the Brattle Square Theatre, Paramount Center’s Bright Family Screening Room, and the Josiah Quincy School from October 24th-27th to showcase something Hollywood rarely likes to share: Asian American actors, screenwriters, producers, cinematographers, and directors.
In a world where non-white faces are still pushed off-screen or relegated to the role of Bad Guy #4 in the background, this festival (along with others that seek to offset mainstream underrepresentation) is a platform for young filmmakers to get their work seen and their voices heard." (continued)
