And The Academy Award Goes To…

As Hollywood rolls out the red carpet for Oscar Sunday, we here at CAAM know exactly which film we’re rooting for: Academy Award Nominee for Best Short Doc, THE TSUNAMI AND THE CHERRY BLOSSOM, which makes its Bay Area Premiere at SFIAAFF30. The first screening of this documentary will be part of our FESTIVAL FORUM, our largest event, bringing a FREE showcase of artists, performers and media makers to SF’s historic Japantown Peace Plaza. This year’s event commemmorates the one-year anniversary of the March 11 Japanese tsunami and earthquake.

Closing Night Gala Presentation: Prison Dancer

For the first time ever, SFIAAFF is proud to present a WEB SERIES as our Closing Night Gala Presentation. Inspired by the 2009 Youtube sensation, the “Dancing Inmates of Cebu,” PRISON DANCER is an original, interactive musical web series featuring a cast of Youtube stars and some of the hottest, rising Filipino musical talent in North America. This special “performative cinema” event will include video, live performances by cast members, and maestro-led audience participation. A once-in-a-lifetime program, this unprecedented experience rethinks what media is and can be.
