PHILADELPHIA ASIAN AMERICAN FILM FESTIVAL 12TH ANNUAL FESTIVAL

November 7 - November 17

Event Navigation

The Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival (PAAFF) returns to the city from November 7 to 17, 2019 with over 90 films, musical concerts, live theater performances by local Asian American and Pacific Islander artists, and an academic conference. Over the past twelve years, PAAFF has seen several generations of organizers, each with their own unique perspectives and ideas that have helped grow the film festival to be what it is today. As PAAFF continues to empower generations of artists and activists, this year’s program focuses on the Passage of Time – from reflections on the past to imaginations of the future within the Asian American movement.
