Boston Asian American Film Festival

9th Annual Festival

The Boston Asian American Film Festival (BAAFF) empowers the Asian American community through film by showcasing Asian American experiences and serving as a resource to filmmakers and the Greater Boston Community. Our film selections highlight both historic and contemporary stories in an effort to deepen understanding and appreciation of Asian American experiences. Hosted in Boston, Massachusetts, this festival attracts people from all over the country every year.

Community is built upon the contributions of those who participate. Our 2017 festival theme is Liberty & Justice – a showcase of inspiring stories about self-empowerment, activists, and civic responsibility advocates who find their voice to be a catalyst of change and in turn motivate change within ourselves.

Join the Boston Asian American Film Festival on October 19-22 to enjoy a wide range of short films, feature films, documentaries, and panels while supporting your local Asian American Community! Q&A with filmmakers follow most screenings.
