I had an absolutely tremendous time on the Super Asian America panel at the SDCC, talking about Asian Americans in comics, film, and television with super smart, super funny people like Amy Chu, Keith Chow, Chloe Bennett, Sumalee Montano, Dante Basco, and Ilram Choi. Massive heart, total honesty, and great good humor from every panelist here, with tremendous moderation by Racebending’s Dariane Nabor. Check it out!
“Happy Fun Room,” a short film directed by yours truly and starring the great Cindy Cheung, screens next Thursday, April 23, at 6:30 pm at the Ithaca Pan Asian Film Festival in Ithaca, New York. All festival screenings are free and open to the public — check out the website here!
If you’re in Seattle, you clearly need to spend Valentine’s Day at the Seattle Asian American Film Festival, where my short film “Happy Fun Room” screens for FREE at 9 pm in the “Animated, Horror & Sci Fi Shorts” program.
