A new month, a new movie

If you can recall back to the beginning of the semester, January began the African Film Festival 2012 [1], when the Pacific Film Archive Theater showed a variety of African films throughout January and February. March is now upon us and marks the end of the festival, but a new month means new opportunities and another film festival is here to fill the short-term vacancy. Thursday, March 8 heralds the beginning of the Center for Asian American Media’s [2] 30th San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival [3]. The festival aims to show contemporary Asian and Asian American cinema throughout San Francisco, Berkeley and San Jose.  

As part of the festivities, the Pacific Film Archive Theater [4]will showcase films and documentaries from Burma, Cambodia, China, New Zealand, South Korea and the United States until Saturday, March 17. The first film the PFA will show in celebration of the festival will be “Fable of the Fish [5],” directed by Adolfo Alix Jr. on Friday, March 9 at 7 p.m. The movie tells a surreal tale in which a couple, Lina and Miguel, give birth to … a fish. Sounds interesting, no? Make sure to check out trailers for the other films in the festival line-up at the Center for Asian American Media’s (CAAM) official YouTube channel [6].

CAAM will also be hosting various events [7] for the festival throughout the Bay Area such as a “Game Salon” in which you can meet Asian-American video game developers such as Jenova Chen of thatgamecompany [8] (their recently released title, “Journey [9],” looks gorgeous) and a “Cook Salon” in which you can meet Chef Preeti Mistry [10] and Beverly Kim [11] who both appeared in Bravo’s television show, Top Chef (Season 6 and 9 respectively).

It looks to be a busy, but fun month!
