Year-Round Highlights at Reel Asian

Three Reel Asian volunteer

Reel Asian is always looking for committed, enthusiastic, energetic and friendly volunteers to help us with our film festival and year-round events. Volunteering with Reel Asian is a fantastic way to meet others who are interested in film and Asian culture, and it gives you a closer look into the production of a community-based film and video festival. 

Check the new episode of Reel Asian’s podcast series Backstory Podcast. Kelly and Aram are back with another highly curated (and definitely not algorithmic) selection of k-pop tracks for the summer. Recommended for finding yourself (and discovering your inner bad boy) on a late night drive.

A mark here, again is an interactive digital exhibition that embraces hyperlocality as an access point for community spaces and cultural networks to coalesce. The online exhibition features a mix of archival works and new commissions from Alexa Hatanaka, Atleigh Homma, Diana Nguyễn, Emerald Repard-Denniston, and Paul Wong.
