A revived film festival highlights the artistic talents of APAs nationwide to a local audience. Comcast had a “reel” blast hosting the festival’s VIP reception recently for film buffs.
Comcast was pleased to host a VIP reception for the Seattle Asian Pacific American (APA) Film Festival on Jan. 26. The reception, held at the China Club Bistro in Seattle’s vibrant International District, brought out-of-town filmmakers, sponsors, and special guests together for food, fun, and film talk. The festival featured more than a dozen acclaimed full-length and short films submitted from across the country to packed crowds at the Wing Luke Museum Tateuchi Story Theater.
The festival first launched as the Northwest Asian American Film Festival in 2003 and ran for four years. The mission of the festival is “to seek out, promote, produce, and develop Asian American artists with a commitment to original and innovative media works.”
“It was great to get support from not only community organizations, but a company like Comcast,” said festival co-director Kevin Bang. ” Comcast’s sponsorship of the VIP Reception gave a more intimate experience for organizers, filmmakers, sponsors, and community partners to get to know each other.”
