All of us at the Center for Asian American Media wish to express our support and sincerest condolences to the Japanese people and all those who have lost loved ones in this devastating tragedy. Here at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival, we feel a deep connection to the people of Japan and the Japanese American community.
Our thoughts are also with our partners at the New People Building here in Japantown.
UPDATED: Thanks to our friends at Verizon and FilmFest making direct donations for disaster relief efforts through cell phone texting and a smartphone app is now available.
