What’s the connection with Jeremy Lin, a rising NBA basketball phenom, and the 30th SFIAAFF? It turns out, Emily Tay, the FEMALE Asian-American Harvard basketball rock star of the documentary, NO LOOK PASS, was friends with Jeremy Lin at Harvard, and her inspirational story can be seen at this year’s Festival!
Drumroll please… the 30th SFIAAFF is here! The Festival’s 30th anniversary program celebrates the past, present, and future – not only honoring pioneers in Asian and Asian American media-making, but also new directions in digital and interactive media, sound and youth culture, culinary arts and gaming.
You may have heard the buzz about our opening night film (no one can keep a secret, anymore), so we’re here to officially tell you, BELIEVE THE HYPE! We are thrilled to kick off SFIAAFF30 with none other than WHITE FROG, the highly-anticipated new film by celebrated director, Quentin Lee.
