A family wedding took me to Washington DC this weekend, my first time in the capital. The weekend was packed with wedding-related events but I was able to make it down to the National Mall just in time to see our friends at DC Asian Pacific American Film Festival, Anna and Tad, both long time board members and programmers. DC APA opened with AU REVOIR TAIPEI which we will be screening at Reel Asian on Closing Night. They also recently awarded their emerging filmmaker award to a film that we will be announcing tomorrow. Congratulations to the whole DC APA team. Hopefully both Anna and Tad will be able to join us in Toronto again this year!
