Since 2004, the CUNY Asian American Film Festival (AAFF) has recognized and awarded over $8,200 in cash prizes to student filmmakers enrolled at the City University of New York, including City College, Brooklyn College, Hunter College, Lehman College, and the College of Staten Island. The CUNY AAFF helps to promote the artistic visual talents and stimulate communication among CUNY students who are separated by the different campuses, and serve as a central location to display their creative works.

On the evening of the Festival, all winners and runner-ups will remain anonymous until after a screening of selected films that have been reviewed by our distinguished panel of judges. Following the screening will be an award ceremony and Q&A session with the filmmakers.

Guest Speaker: Jean Tsien, Documentary Film Editor

Winner ($200) and runner-up ($100) prizes will be awarded for each of the following categories: Fiction | Documentary | Experimental

AAARI encourages all currently enrolled (or recently graduated in Spring/Fall 2012) CUNY undergraduate and graduate students, Asian and non-Asian, to participate in this great opportunity.
