San Diego Asian Film Festival closes this Thursday

 In Arts and Culture, Events

If you haven’t already checked out what SDAFF is offering at its 11th annual film festival, there’s still two days of comedies, dramas, shorts, animation, and documentaries by Asian and Asian-American filmmakers to explore at the UltraStar Mission Valley Cinemas.

Tonight’s line-up includes animation shorts by artists around the world, a documentary on the lingering aftereffects of the bombings on Hiroshima and Nagasaki survivors, not one but two(!)  showings of Donnie Yen’s turn in Ip Man 2 (a must see for martial arts enthusiasts), and a screening with the filmmaker of the Philippine indie drama The Mountain Thief.


The festival closes on Thursday with a line-up that includes a documentary on adoption and South Korea, a family drama from Japan and South Korea, a shorts program focused on Asian-American experiences in New York City, a comedy-romance from Vietnam, and two screening of the closing night film Au Revoir Taipei, a Taiwanese indie romance set in France.

Tickets to these screenings can be purchased at the UltraStar Mission Valley box office. Ticket holders and festival pass holders can also attend Thursday’s closing night party at the Randy Jones All American Grill in Hazard Center with complimentary food, silent auction, and raffles.
