C-Dub says Aloha
by Jimmy Tsai
Aloha everybody! Kickin' it out here in the beautiful state of Hawaii at the moment where both "Ping Pong Playa" and "The Killing of a Chinese Cookie" are playing at the Louis Vuitton Hawaii International Film Festival. More on that later.
Before we got here, I spent several days down at the San Diego Asian Film Festival where "Ping Pong Playa" was the opening night film. And let me say: BOY, do the folks at SDAFF know how to do it up right! In addition to the movies, I also had a chance to participate in a college tour with my boyz Far East Movement and Wong Fu Productions; speak on a panel with the likes of the immensely talented actors Leonardo Nam, Aaron Yoo, Smith Cho, and Sheetal Sheth; and attend their amazing gala. Major props and respect to Lee Ann Kim and all the wonderful SDAFF staff (ya'll know who you are).
And on a bit of a sad note, I just learned of the passing of one of the SDAFF programmers, George Lin. Rest in peace, brother.
To be continued when I get back from Hawaii. Mahalo!
