Attend outdoor screenings of Asian films through Oct. 10
The first annual Screenshot: Asia Film Festival runs through Oct. 10. Twelve feature and short films from Asia and Asian American filmmakers will be shown.
Screenshot: Asia is a joint project from the Film and Media Studies Program and the Asian Studies Center that brings together students, faculty and community members to create a shared awareness of Asian and Asian American experiences through contemporary film and media.
Using film, video and other on-screen arts, the series provides a forum to learn about Asian art, whether it is a classic work of cinema, a film by an emerging director or a documentary addressing contemporary social concerns. The programming allows participants to reflect on the importance of visual arts, current arts technology and the place of cultural experiences in a global educational experience.
