Reel Asian’s Oscars™ Watch Party!

On Sunday, March 10, 2023, Reel Asian will host the Oscars™ watch-along event! This will be a fun, casual get-together to celebrate the Asian representation among this year’s Academy Award nominees, including TO KILL A TIGER nominated for the Best Documentary Feature Award! Notable nominees include:

Doors open at 6PM and there will be mixing and mingling with catering & refreshments from Fox on John and Haisue while the pre-show red carpet broadcast screens in the background. We will have our very own red carpet and backdrop set up to take pictures on! At 6:30PM, we will gather in the Bachir-Yerex Presentation Space for a screening of NǍI NAI & WÀI PÓ and watch as the broadcast stream is projected on the wall. This is a casual, relaxed event so you don’t have to stay seated for the entire broadcast – feel free to get up and move between the two spaces, socialize, and enjoy the hospitality and conviviality of your fellow community members.
