Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival Virtual Showcase
Presented by Visual Communications, the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival (LAAPFF) is the premiere showcase for the best and brightest of Asian Pacific American and international cinema. The largest festival of its kind in Southern California, LAAPFF is also a proud Academy Award®-qualifying film festival for the Short Film Awards.
In keeping with directives from our local, state, and federal health agencies, we have rescheduled the 36th Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival to a later date as we continue our commitment to the well being of our volunteers, artists, and audiences.
We acknowledge that this virus has been racialized and has incited hateful acts towards our communities. While we are seeing anti-Asian sentiments that perpetuate perilous narratives, Visual Communications and the Festival will continue to be a space for expression, engagement, and empowerment.
Therefore, we are proud to announce our Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival Virtual Showcase, slated for Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May. The Virtual Showcase aims to highlight artists whose stories are critical at this moment. From celebrating our histories and cultures, to mobilizing our communities to be socially and politically active, we are looking forward to presenting FREE films and panels to keep us connected.
