The Asian American & Pacific Islander Film Festival Fest is entering the 15th year of its legacy and tradition of sharing a celebration of art, film, and music from the AAPI community with the city of Houston.

The festival will be showcasing 50+ new AAPI shorts and feature films that highlight and celebrate the diversity of AAPI culture, food, and family, to support AAPI artists and filmmakers, and to share the untold AAPI experience for the Greater Houston metropolitan area through edutainment.

The festival's opening night will feature the Houston premiere of Jay Chern's Omotenashi, followed by a Private VIP Reception with a special Q&A with the director. This event is in partnership with Asia Society, Taiwan Academy and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.

Opening night will be at Asia Society Texas Center, with the rest of the festival taking place at the Houston Marriott - Westchase.
