Boston Asian American Film Festival Launch Party 2011

Launch Party Glow Sticks!

This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Boston Asian American Film Festival Launch Party 2011 at the Greatest Bar in Boston, MA. It was a beautiful night filled with community organizers, volunteers, students, and tons of food and raffle prizes. Setting the mood for the event was awesome music by an upcoming local Asian American DJ, DJ JessieJess. BAAFF definitely knows how to host a launch party!

During my time there, I was able to catch up with Development Intern, Lily Chan and Festival Coordinator Janice Wong. I was able to ask them a few questions about their roles in the festival and the overall mission of the Boston Asian American Film Festival. I also had the pleasure of meeting Susan Chinsen, Co Director of the festival and was able to interview her about her role in BAAFF along with her passions and desires for the future of this wonderful event.
