Asian Heritage Street Celebration (AHSC) Cinema Showcase
San Francisco, CA 94102
The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) is thrilled to sponsor the second year of the Asian Heritage Street Celebration (AHSC) Cinema Showcase! Last year featured work from Bay Area talent, such as music videos by H.P. Mendoza and Rich Wong — who both premiered feature-length films at SFIAAFF30 — as well as Valerie Soe and and Russell Jeung’s OAK PARK, a documentary about the challenges faced by a tenant community in East Oakland.
What’s in store for this year? “For the 2nd Annual AHSC Cinema Showcase, it’s our intention to celebrate the breadth of talent we have here in the Bay Area,” says Masashi Niwano, Festival Director for CAAM. “We have selected a collection of fantastic shorts films & music videos from many local cities including San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Fremont and Palo Alto. These emerging mediamakers have new stories and voices that will surely entertain and inspire the audience.” Additionally, we are excited to have this year’s programming curated in collaboration with our friends at the Third I Film Festival.
The Asian Heritage Street Celebration Cinema Showcase will be held at the Asian Art Museum’s Samsung Hall on Saturday May 19th from 2PM to 4PM. Admission to the museum will be free all day, courtesy of Target and there will be no cost to watch the films.
