The San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival (SFIAAFF) presented every March is the nation’s largest showcase for new Asian American and Asian films, annually presenting approximately 130 works in San Francisco, Berkeley and San Jose, USA. Since 1982, the SFIAAFF has been a launching point for Asian American independent filmmakers as well as a source for new Asian cinema.
