The Silicon Valley Asian Pacific FilmFest (formerly, San Jose J-Town FilmFest) is a celebration of the multi-ethnic community and rich history of Silicon Valley.
An all-volunteer-run effort by a diverse team of community members, the film festival showcases independent films primarily by Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) filmmakers and offers quality programming, giving the community a chance to interact with the creative talents behind these films.
In its 4th year, the Film Fest is crucial in bringing a diversified voice to Silicon Valley, especially those around Asians and Asian Americans to highlight the thriving arts community in the Bay Area.
The event is about cultivating, curating and preserving art, democracy, individualism and authenticity amongst an-other-wise over looked group.
This year features an exciting line-up including Brad Kageno's "I Hate you," a romantic comedy about an interracial couple. Be sure to catch a special Q&A with Wong Fu Productions, including a giveaway!
Another exciting component to this year's programming is a short-film competition with local filmmakers in California.
