"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)
