It’s with great sadness that I learned that George Lin, the programmer of the San Diego Asian Film Festival, died on October 14. George was a great colleague and friend whose gentle humor, commitment to the community, and enduring support will be sorely missed.
Please read Lee Ann Kim’s beautiful tribute to learn more about George, and see below for information about his memorial service and memorial fund.
UPDATE: Here’s George’s obituary in the San Diego Union-Tribune and here’s a Facebook page dedicated to George.
