Missed the festival? Check out our highlights from the first-ever Ithaca Pan Asian American Film Festival!
The Ithaca Pan Asian American Film Festival is a project driven by students, faculty, and Ithaca community members. This film festival is a fruitful collaboration between the School for the Humanities and Sciences and the Roy H. Park School of Communications at Ithaca College. As a first-time film festival, we strongly believe that fostering intellectual growth, aesthetic appreciation, and character development not only occurs in the classroom, but also outside the classroom and in everyday action. Check out our trailer below!
Over a five-day venue held from April 20 to April 24, 2015, we will showcase short and feature length films by and of Asian Americans. Through film screenings and panel discussions, IPAAFF aims to present material that will engage audiences in active participation and challenge them to think about race, agency, experiences, and ideologies in new ways.
The Ithaca Pan Asian American Film Festival is dedicated to supporting Asian American film, video and media makers both nationwide and throughout the upstate New York area while promoting films created by, starring, and/or about Asian Americans.
The Ithaca Pan Asian American Film Festival aims to:
- Develop and support both emerging and experienced Asian American filmmakers and artists who work in a range of genres and styles
- Engage audiences in a diverse and complex spectrum of Asian and Asian American works
- Present students with the opportunity to learn about Asian American film and gain event-planning skills
