Boston Asian American Film Festival Oct. 20-23


The Boston Asian American Film Festival (BAAFF) empowers the Asian American community through film by showcasing Asian American experiences and serving as a resource to filmmakers and the Greater Boston Community. Our film selections highlight both historic and contemporary stories in an effort to deepen understanding and appreciation of Asian American experiences. Hosted in Boston, Massachusetts, this festival attracts people from all over the country every year.

The festival theme is Call to Action, which showcases inspiring films about Asian American contributions to creating change within their communities – compelling stories about Asian-American self-empowerment, change-makers, civic responsibility, activists and advocates.

Community is built upon the contributions of those who participate. Our 2016 festival seeks to showcase inspiring stories about self-empowerment, activists, change-makers, civic responsibility, advocates and all those in between.

Join the Boston Asian American Film Festival on October 20-23 to enjoy a wide range of short films, feature films, documentaries, and panels while supporting your local Asian American Community!
