This year’s 9th annual Silk Screen Asian Film Festival will kick off in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on April 25th with a Red Carpet Gala culture and costume party. This event includes a jazz performance, a live auction, ethnic food and dance, and a special late night dessert and DJ party! Here are the details for that event:

Then the Gala will be followed by nine days of films from countries ranging from Central to East Asia, from Turkey to Indonesia. The film schedule is here:

Films will run from April 26th through May 4th. I can personally recommend the following films:

“Garden of Words”
“The Haumana”
“Things Left Behind”
“Zinda Bhaag”

This year’s opening film is Palestinian entry “Omar,” and the closing film is “Mourning Recipe” from Japan. Hope to see you there!
