WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The 34th edition of the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival will be held from May 3 to 12. It will present a slate of artistes and creators who continue to shift narratives and challenge perspectives. And with regard to the ongoing discourse on diversity, it aims to have a space that engages intra-diversity amongst Asian American & Pacific Islanders and inter-diversity with other communities.
