2008 Asian Film & Television Festival

Date: Monday to Friday, May 12 to 16, 2008

Time: 2PM to 4PM; & 4PM to 6PM

Place: Chinese Community Center
64 Mott Street, Manhattan

Free Admission (Limited Capacity Available)
First-come, First-serve Basis

Note: All films are shown in Mandarin Chinese with English subtitles.

This free five-day event will showcase films of varying topics that will help to assist in bridging the gap between Asian and American cultures. Another goal of the Asian Film & Television Festival is to draw in New York City residents to visit Chinatown, a bustling neighborhood of commerce, entertainment, and delectable cuisine. Since September 11, 2001, Chinatown’s economy has suffered tremendously through the loss of jobs, businesses and traffic access in Lower Manhattan.
