This free five-day event will showcase films of varying topics that will help to assist in bridging the gap between Asian and American cultures.

Another goal of the Asian Film & Television Festival is to draw in New York City residents to visit Chinatown, a bustling neighborhood of commerce, entertainment, and delectable cuisine. Since September 11, 2001, Chinatown’s economy has suffered tremendously through the loss of jobs, businesses and traffic access in Lower Manhattan.

Major funding is provided by New York State Senate, Parks Cultural & Arts Fund, Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association, and community funds.

Co-Sponsored by Asian American / Asian Research Institute (AAARI), and Reflect-arts, Inc.
