It's VC time of the year again as the LA Asian Pacific Film Festival kicks off tonight for another year of great programming from around the Pacific. The fest runs from May 1-11 and mostly takes place at the DGA and CGV Cinemas (though there are a few screenings in Long Beach and at Downtown's Japanese American National Museum).
As we did last year, ScreenAnarchy has chosen five films to put on your radar - not an easy task as the fest is packed with many lesser known films with Asian connections. Check out the gallery below and let us know what you'll be seeing.
Plus there is plenty more on the LAAPFF homepage
Awesome Asian Bad Guys
This superhero send up from hilarious comedy duo Patrick Epino and Stephen Dypiango (collectively known as the National Film Society) promises to bring these guys' offbeat comedy to the big screen at last. The story (originally planned as a web series) follows our heroes as they put together a super villain super team to take down LA's baddest badguy. It's gonna be a blast.
