So's Film Diaries #12: Premiering my Short Film at LAAPFF 2018!
My short film had its World Premiere this past week at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival and it was a blast! Opening night started off with a bang with Aneesh Chaganty's Searching, starring John Cho. I'm usually programming for film festivals so I didn't realize that as a filmmaker, I get invited to all the cool brunches and mixers! In the mid-week, I went to C3 to watch all the panels and to a screening of Bing Liu's poignant and powerful documentary called Minding the Gap. Finally, it was premiere night of all the Armed with a Camera shorts and the response was overwhelming. We've all been working on our individual films for the past 3 months from pre-production to post that when it finally premiered, we all let out a collective sigh of relief! LAAPFF closing night came rapidly and it was M.I.A.'s doc, MATANGI / MAYA / M.I.A., which was so insightful and engaging. Overall, it was another great year and I can't wait to be back next year!
