As Momo mentioned here earlier, the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival returns for its 24th year in just a few weeks: opening night gala is March 16th.
Hyphen's a sponsor again this year, so look for our logo all over! (We do. And when we spot one we elbow each other and giggle. Nerdy but true.)
We're also co-presenting one of the screenings: The Achievers, by Abraham Lim. A world premiere, no less! No one's even allowed to do a full review on it yet because they're keeping the film under wraps until its official release later this year. But you can go see it at the SFIAAFF before the rest of the world does. After all, the promo image for this movie is a fortune cookie that says Eat Me. (Oh, how much more loaded a message that is now, than when Alice first read it.) Got to find out what happens.
And -- newsflash -- this year Hyphen is also going to be one of the Festival's official Bloggers. Up in a few days, and throughout the festival, we'll have a special blog page dedicated to reviews, buzz, musings and hopefully dirt about the SFIAAFF: www.hyphenmagazine.com/blog/archives/sfiaaff/.
So we'll see you there, and you can dish with us here. Happy movie-going to you.
