More On The Festival
What began with a small meeting in September of 2014 culminated seven months later with the monumental gathering of campus and community at the opening night gala for the inaugural Ithaca Pan Asian American Film Festival (IPAAFF). We are currently organizing the second annual IPAAFF, engaging once again the greater Ithaca community with the diverse and complex spectrum of Asian American experience. The three-day festival will take place from April 15-17, 2016. It will provide a unique and much-needed space for both local and national artists. In addition to showcasing short and feature-length films that explore the diversity of Asian American experiences, the festival will also host panels, cultural events, and other artistic performances. It is with your help and support that we will make this year’s IPAAFF a success.

What can you do to help? Submit your film electronically at the FilmFreeway website https://filmfreeway.com/festival/ithacapaaff by no later than March 28, 2016.


Sign up at our website at www.panasianamericanfilm.org. You will meet great people, see our beautiful campus, enjoy multicultural cinema, and all for a great cause.
