AIFFA is a nonprofit organization which aims to raise awareness on independent films from ASIA.
The Asian International Film Festival Arizona (AIFFA) will hit the screens on December 6, 7, and 8 at the Pollack Cinemas featuring the best and multi-awarded films pre-selected from 10 Asian countries. When half of the world’s population comes from Asia, a festival of Asian films like AIFFA in a metropolitan city like Tempe will enhance multicultural understanding, provide an impetus for diversity in economic life and add to the vibrancy of culture in the city.
The 3-day festival’s theme “AIFFA: Bridging the World Through Asian Cinema”, promises new experiences and an opportunity for cultural exchange. The Opening VIP Gala will feature a screening of Dark is the Night, a multi-awarded film from the Philippines about the country’s war on drugs.
