Welcome to the 35th edition of the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival! Visual Communications is proud to present artists who shift narratives and stories that challenge perspectives. This Festival is our process of creating and connecting our ideal communities through film and media, which we strive to be inclusive and diverse, with goals of equity and change.

This May, we also honor our builders and storytellers as we celebrate Visual Communications’ 49th anniversary with our PAST//FORWARD Gala. Additionally, we invite you to our upcoming exhibit AT FIRST LIGHT: The Dawning of Asian Pacific America – a multi-media exhibition that explores and celebrates the emergence of a politically defined Asian Pacific American consciousness and identity.

On behalf of the VC Staff and Board, THANK YOU to our VC members, donors, artists, partners, friends, and families for continuing to believe in what we do and what we make happen. In our pursuit to create spaces for cultural connections, we hope that each one of you find a home with us at the Festival.

Francis Cullado,
Executive Director
