Asian CineVision (ACV) is a nonprofit media arts organization devoted to the development, promotion, preservation, and exhibition of Asian and Asian American film and video. Since 1978, ACV has produced the Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF), the nation’s longest running festival of its kind and the premier showcase for the best in independent Asian and Asian American cinema.
Now in its 36th year, ACV has steadily defined and progressively broadened its role as an Asian American media arts center by serving a growing constitutency that includes filmmakers, media programmers, and the local and regional Asian American community and a national audience. ACV is committed to film and media as a tool for social change and to the support of diversity in independent cinema.
Asian CineVision's historic growth has been made possible through the many Friends who for the last three decades have shared in the vision of an Asian American media arts movement.
