The supernova star power of Hong Kong cinema icons Maggie Cheung, Michelle Yeoh, and Anita Mui propels narrative feature ‼️THE HEROIC TRIO‼️. They are the knife-throwing, shotgun-toting, kung-fu-fighting super-heroines who must overcome their dark pasts in order to defeat an evil, baby-snatching eu**ch who is terrorizing Hong Kong.

This gloriously unrestrained action extravaganza from genre maestro Johnnie To injects martial-arts mayhem with a blast of comic-book lunacy. Eye-popping motorcycle stunts, brain-exploding skeletons, infant cannibals, and kinetically choreographed wire work are all part of the delirium in this unstoppably entertaining cult favorite (referenced in Cheung’s international breakthrough Irma Vep), a kick-butt showcase for three of the coolest women warriors to ever hit the screen.

Join us on October 15, 2022 as we present THE HEROIC TRIO (on the big screen😍) in a special day of film screenings at LAAPFF PRESENTS: HONG KONG GENERATIONS OF CINEMA, taking place at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Grand Ave.

🎬TWILIGHT'S KISS🎬 is a quiet portrayal of a relationship between two men in their twilight years.

Pak, a 70-year-old taxi driver who refuses to retire, meets Hoi, a retired 65-year-old single father at a park. Despite the families they had built respectively, the encounter sparks a desire that they had both suppressed and leads to a contemplation of a life together.

Maika: The Girl From Another Galaxy | Well Go USA Entertainment

We can't wait for film Maika (dir. Ham Tran) to hit theaters this June in over 21 cities! Don't miss your chance to see it! More from the director below:

"MAIKA is a story about a boy who is unable to overcome his grief over the death of his mother when he meets an alien girl who needs help to find a lost friend. I felt an immediate connection to the boy, Hung, because I had just lost my Mom the previous year, and was struggling with my own grief. I embarked on making MAIKA as a love letter to her, and despite its many challenges, not only did MAIKA wrap 9 months after filming began, it helped to heal my own broken heart, and was selected to premiere at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival earlier this year! At a recent film festival screening, I met a Vietnamese family whose kids were so thrilled because they had never seen a Vietnamese film in a movie theater before. I can relate to their joy because growing up in Orange County, I saw many family sci-fi films, too, but never with Vietnamese faces. I'm so excited that MAIKA will be released theatrically on June 3rd in 21 cities across North America, and that many families, especially young Asian and Asian North American kids (and kids-at-heart) will also be able to take pride in seeing themselves represented on the big screen!"

After losing his mother to illness and his best friend to an unexpected move, a young boy discovers a crashed spaceship and makes a new friend with awesome powers (although she does need a little help with her earthly social skills). Together, they embark on a zany, fun-filled adventure while taking...

Thank you ABC7 News for your coverage on the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festivall (Visual Communications)! We appreciate your amplification of our AAPI filmmakers and storytellers! Check out this recap and please share with your friends if you see them in the clip!
The 1882 Foundation and the DC chapter of the Asian American Journalists Association hosted a screening on May 10, the day the Transcontinental Railroad was completed. In 2014, Corky famously recreated the "champagne photo", which omitted Chinese railroad workers, with descendants of the Chinese laborers in an act of “photographic justice.”

Dear Corky, directed by Vincent Who? director Curtis Chin and longtime BAAFF collaborator Kenneth Eng, premiered on Friday at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival (and will hopefully be shown in Boston later on this year!)

This really made my day (my week, my birthday month!) because "Sa Paglupad Ka Banog" (The Flight of Banog) was given a rave review by film critic Tom Wilmot of Asian Movie Pulse (Though I have read his reviews in the past but I don't know him personally so this is even more special). When I reached the last paragraph, I really cried. Here's a critic who perfectly understood our film and our love and respect for the indigenous material. This is really a huge treat for my birthday (which I don't usually celebrate anyway - but it's coming in 12 days). THANK YOU SO MUCH Tom and Asian Movie Pulse. And THANK YOU VERY MUCH Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival for selecting our film to be screened during the opening day and playing our DCP at the Directors Guild of America (Cinema 3). It matters to me that the film be watched in a theater so the film will be even more appreciated. Very much humbled by this review. BAW SALAMAT GID NGA MADAMO! Ginpalipay n'yo gid kami. ❤️🙏
A big THANK YOU to everyone who joined us on Sunday at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival.
