Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival

The Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival (PAAFF) is back, and better than ever with their largest program to date!

Founded in 2008 to showcase films by and about Asian Americans for audiences in the Greater Philadelphia region, PAAFF is a nonprofit organization that presents captivating programs that engage, inspire, and connect the community.

While PAAFF offers year round programming at various venues across Philadelphia, their marquee celebration is the annual festival hosted each November at International House and elsewhere throughout the city. Featuring over 40 film screenings, speaker panels, receptions, and special events - PAAFF’14 promises to be the most successful yet!

Many of this year’s events will feature guest appearances from today’s most popular Asian American filmmakers, as well as actors and directors from around the world.

OPENING NIGHT FILM & FREE CATERED RECEPTION!
Imagine a steady stream of immigrants, traveling across a vast ocean to a foreign country, searching for new jobs and better lives. But the immigrants are Americans, and the country they are moving to… is China. SHANGHAI CALLING is a romantic comedy about modern-day American immigrants in an unfamiliar land.

When an ambitious New York attorney is sent to Shanghai on assignment, he immediately stumbles into a legal mess that could spell the end of his career. But with help from a beautiful relocation specialist, a well-connected foreign businessman, a clever but unassuming journalist, and a street-smart assistant, Sam might just save his job, discover romance, and learn to appreciate the many wonders Shanghai has to offer.
