As the first and longest-running Asian American festival in the US, the Asian American International Film Festival is the premier showcase for works by filmmakers of Asian descent, or about the Asian community. The festival is a program of Asian CineVision, Inc., a not-for-profit national media arts organization dedicated to the development, promotion and preservation of film and video arts by and about people of Asian descent. Founded in 1976 by Hong Kong cinema legend Tsui Hark, Oscar-nominated director Christine Choy, Danny Yung, and Peter Chow, ACV began as a media activism organization, aiming to raise awareness through media training in local Chinese communities.
The Asian American International Film Festival screens all kinds of films: features, shorts, narrative, documentary, animation, experimental, and youth.
