All Day 2018 San Diego Asian Film Festival Pacific Arts Movement (Pac Arts) is thrilled to present the 19th Annual San Diego Asian Film Festival (SDAFF), the largest platform of Asian cinema on the west coast, from November 8-17, 2018. In its largest iteration yet, SDAFF will present over 160 films from 20 countries in 28 languages showcasing the best in both award-winning and cutting-edge cinema from Asia, Asian America and around the world.

This year, Pac Arts is adding Asian cuisine to the movie-goer experience, partnering with local San Diego restaurants to bring food featured in the films to festival attendees before and after the opening and closing night films!

"Expanding the world of the films to include San Diego cuisine is directly tied to our mission of telling the stories of Asian Americans and connecting them with lives here," says Pac Arts Artistic Director Brian Hu.

All San Diegans are welcome to attend the festival and experience some of the best Asian films of the year!

Admission/Cost: $12 per screening, Opening and Closing Films $40 - Multi-film and Festival Passes available

This exciting, free performance will be offered by students from the Museum School, which is located nearby in Bankers Hill, where students grades K-8 study this fascinating musical art form every week throughout the school year.

This performance will occur in conjunction with MOPA's Reverberate: Sound + Image 13th Annual Juried Youth Exhibition, showcasing the photographic talents of youth in San Diego and Tijuana. This year, students responded to the theme "Sound." The exhibition highlights the students' imaginative approaches to visualizing what we can hear but not always see.
