2017 Sacramento Asian Pacific Film Festival
The Sacramento Asian Pacific Cultural Village presents the 2017 Sacramento Asian Pacific Film Festival at the Guild Theater on May 26th & 27th, with a special Encore Presentation of Films of Remembrance at the California Museum, May 28th.
This year’s theme is “RESIST!”, featuring film and video projects that explore the Asian Pacific Islander immigrant, refugee, and indigenous experience in America, and common struggles for justice and equality.
Starting Friday evening, more than 2 dozen films will screen across 3 days and 5 separate showtimes, with a FREE film and panel discussion Saturday morning. Sunday’s expanded programming includes admission to the California Museum and coincides with the closing day of the exhibit “Kokoro: The Story of Sacramento’s Lost Japantown“, with films focusing on the forced removal and incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II.
