IMAGE MOVERS: Film Festival
Asian American Studies Center 50th Anniversary

Join us for a feast of imagery and poignant commentary with a lineup of movies, new and classic, from comedy to horror, to sci-fi and documentaries, that touch on the most meaningful issues of our time. Hear from Asian American and Pacific Islander filmmakers and actors about their creative journeys, and from scholars, artists, and community leaders on the meaning of these films in today's world.
