28 Apr 2015 SDAFF Spring Showcase Makes Another Splash!
Another SDAFF Spring Showcase, another chance to cheer! Join us (and these Barnard Elementary students!) in celebrating some of our favorite moments:
Director Tony Vainuku joined on opening night for the Polynesian documentary IN FOOTBALL WE TRUST, sponsored by Union Bank.
Closing night film TOP SPIN was preceded by a table tennis demonstration by local champs Earl Altos and Daryl Sterling, Jr.
The Showcase capped off with free screenings of our retrospective event “Cinema Little Saigon” at Hoover High School, including a powerful Q&A for OH, SAIGON, with director Doan Hoang and her father and brother.
“Cinema Little Saigon” also gave San Diego audiences a rare chance to see modern classics on 35mm. Our trusty projectionists Staci Gaines and Jon Miller to the reigns of UltraStar projectors old and new.
We also brought Vietnamese American cinema to students of Hoover High School, with filmmaker Adele Pham present to speak to Hoover students about her film #NAILEDIT.
Thanks to all of our audiences, sponsors, filmmakers, volunteers, and members in helping make the 2015 SDAFF Spring Showcase another rousing success, full of ridiculous costumes, big smiles, and a love of film. See you in November for the 16th San Diego Asian Film Festival!
