This is a bit early, but if you've been waiting to see Asian American festival favorites White on Rice and/or Children of Invention on the big screen this spring, you're in luck. Both films are available on DVD, but getting these films into a theater proper makes more of a statement in terms of recognizing new Asian American cinema within the industry and allowing moviegoers to it. 

The films will be part of a double bill, debuting at the BIG Cinemas Manhattan in New York City on March 12, 2010 as part of a partnership between Variance Films and Big Cinemas .

Children of Invention will also simultaneously run at the Brattle Theater in Boston and at the Downtown Independent in Los Angeles.
