The Pacific Arts Movement invites the San Diego community to a preview of the 16th San Diego Asian Film Festival at Chew the Scene on Oct. 1.
The event will give the community a first look at films and programs for the largest exhibition of Asian cinema on the West Coast. Chew the Scene will be held at the McMillin Event Center at Liberty Station.
Those attending will also enjoy unlimited food and drink tastings from more than a dozen vendors serving traditional and modern Asian cuisine.
Attendees will also be the only ones with access to discounted All-Fest passes, six-packs and the Big Night Bundle including the opening night party at the Museum of Contemporary Art in La Jolla.
Chew the Scene is supported by a grant from the city of San Diego, San Diego Gas & Electic, Procopio, and Harcourt Prestige Properties.
The 16th San Diego Asian Film Festival will feature more than 130 films from 15 different countries.
Its programs will be held in five venues across San Diego including its home base at UltraStar Mission Valley in the Hazard Center; its opening and closing night films at the Sherwood Auditorium at the Museum of Contemporary Art at UC San Diego’s California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology building; and the Museum of Photographic Arts at Balboa Park.
The final day of the festival will be held at the historic La Paloma in Encinitas.
The San Diego Asian Film Festival will run from Nov. 5-14.
