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

This year marks the UCLA Asian American Studies Center's 50th anniversary. To continue our series of celebratory events, we are excited to host Image Movers, a three-weekend film festival featuring powerful imagery and poignant commentary about some of the most meaningful issues facing our AAPI communities. Each program features films organized around central themes. After each screening, audiences will hear from Asian American and Pacific Islander filmmakers and actors speaking to their creative journeys, as well as from scholars, artists, and community leaders on the meaning of these themes in today's world.
