Established in 2000, the DC Asian Pacific American (DC APA) Film Festival is devoted to encourage films and other media arts created by Asian Pacific Americans (APA). Every year, we bring together filmmakers, artists and cinema patrons to celebrate interesting stories and great cultures. Since then, DC APA has been an active member of the DC Metropolitan community and has showcased over 700 shorts and feature length films.
Now for its 13th year, from October 4-7, 2012, DC APA Film Festival will continue at the nation’s capital, presenting a handful of narrative, documentary, animated, and experimental films that both entertain and educate. The festival will be held at city’s top venues including Smithsonian Freer-Sackler Galleries, Goethe Institute, E Street Landmark Theatres, Bethesda Row Cinema, Navy Memorial Theater and more,featuring non-stop screenings and numerous special events such as panel discussions, filmmaker Q&As, etc.
It is a rare opportunity for movie enthusiasts to view films that are otherwise hard to access.
