Asian Journal — 01.10.2020

Aswang and A Thousand Cuts are both being screened at this year’s AAIFF.

A FILIPINO Filmmaker Roundtable to kick-off Filipino American History Month, along with a few Filipino films led by “Death of Nintendo,” “Aswang” and “A Thousand Cuts” are among the special events to watch out for at this year’s 43rd Asian American International Film Festival.

Organizers announced the full lineup last week which includes over 15 feature films, 14 short film blocks and over 16 workshops, masterclasses, livestreamed events, panels, and workshops including a conversational series on the issue of anti-racism in storytelling.

The festival, which will happen online from October 1 to 11, will feature over three hours of panels, Q&As, and performances, all accessible as pay-as-you-wish programs every day.

The Filipino Filmmaker roundtable, which will gather Filipino filmmakers at different points in their careers to discuss their work, process, and what it’s like to create now, is scheduled to happen on October 1.
