DC Asian Pacific American Film Festival is Next Week

Au Revoir Taipei
DC APA Film is hosting their 11th annual film festival next week in downtown DC. From the fest kickoff happy hour  to the closing night presentation, and film showings in between; most can be reached by riding the 42 bus. The film festival is October 7-16.

The venues are E Street Cinema, Goethe Institut, Freer Gallery, and National Museum of the American Indian. Opening night is October 7, 7:30pm at E Street Cinema featuring Au Revoir Taipei, described as a "whimsical romantic caper" set in Taiwan. A reception will follow Au Revoir Taipei at Asia Nine Restaurant at 915 E St NW (free for movie ticket holders). 

The rest of the schedule can be found here. Many of the films are short; 3 minutes, 5 minutes, 6 minutes. Others are feature length. And some are even free! Seems like we had the summer of film festivals and apparently they are continuing into the fall. Have a great weekend.
