We are no longer in (virtual) Park City, Utah, but in equally (virtual) Austin, Texas! The organizers of the Asian Pacific Filmmakers Experience are pleased to celebrate a solid slate of works by Asian American and pacific Islander filmmakers that are premiering as part of the South by Southwest Film, Music, and Digital Media Festival and Conference, March 16 through 20, 2021. This stellar class of filmmakers offers proof that Asian American and Pacific Islander cinema is made ALL YEAR round. Check ’em out! And celebrate with them at our #APAAustin event here!
