PHILADELPHIA, PA (October 11, 2012) – This Fall, the 5th Annual Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival (PAAFF) presented by HBO proudly celebrates its fifth anniversary in bringing quality Asian American cinema to the greater Philadelphia Area. PAAFF’12 will kick-off with a free Launch Night event on Friday, October 26st, at 7pm at the Prince Music Theater Black Box (1412 Chestnut Street). The Festival will proceed on November 7 – 17th at two venues: the Ibrahim Theater at the International House (3701 Chestnut Street) and the Asian Arts Initiative (1219 Vine Street).

PAAFF’12 opens with “SHANGHAI CALLING,” a romantic comedy about modern-day American immigrants in an unfamiliar land. The Opening Night Film stars Daniel Henney (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Eliza Coupe (Happy Endings), and features legendary Hollywood actor Bill Paxton (Big Love), showing Thursday, November 8th.

“WHITE FROG” is a universal story of the power of family, friendship, and love starring Booboo Stewart (Twilight Saga), Joan Chen (The Last Emperor), BD Wong (Law & Order: SVU) and Harry Shum, Jr (Glee).

The 5th Annual Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival (PAAFF) is sponsored primarily by HBO and Comcast and is the first event of its kind in Philadelphia – a film festival celebrating and elevating the Asian American experience. In five years, PAAFF is proud to have screened over 100 films (Documentaries, Narrative Features and Shorts), bringing culturally relevant programming to a broad audience while providing sponsors with a meaningful platform to engage the community.

PAAFF’12 will showcase 8 narrative feature films, 4 documentaries, and 2 short film programs, along with free receptions, parties, and special events, including an appearance by Daniel Ho, 6-time Grammy winning Hawaiian musical artist, and a moderated panel, “Asian Americans in Hollywood.”
