November 5, 1999 • Film

fat_final3long copyThe Asian Film Foundation (AFF) was established in 1999 as a nonprofit 501(c) 3 corporation to raise awareness of and appreciation for Asian culture through film in the U.S.

“We are a small but committed group of volunteers whose passion for Asian films and fascination for their cultures have brought us together. Our primary purpose is to promote the cultures of Asia through the presentation of the region’s rich cinematic traditions. AFF’s secondary purpose is to foster an awareness for the importance of film preservation for these films. Film screenings and festivals were held throughout the year to raise funds for these endeavors. Lectures by filmmakers will be held either in conjunction with screenings or separately.”

Although AFF is no longer hosting or producing film festivals, its archive of film reviews serve as a reminder that it’s never too late to discover Asian cinema. We’ll do our best to keep their archive online as well as add to it as time allows.
