With so much filmmaking talent and so many stories to share, we just couldn’t fit it all into our annual San Diego Asian Film Festival — but we found the perfect solution: a mini-festival in the spring!

 

Since 2011, the SDAFF Spring Showcase has brought a dozen or so of the best of Asian and Asian American cinema to the other side of the calendar year. For the die-hard fans, it means more Asian cinema throughout the year. For the uninitiated, it’s the ideal way to get to know what the San Diego Asian Film Festival is all about!

 

The 9th Annual SDAFF Spring Showcase returns April 11 – 18, 2019! Learn more and get tickets:
