Like so many events this year, the Boston Asian American Film Festival opening Wednesday is a brand-new gig.
“People in our community are living in intergenerational households with elderly people,” noted Susan Chinsen, founding director of BAAFF.
“Yes for the landscape of what’s in Boston, there are typically venues and presenters that traditionally have focused on Asian cinema.
“We’ve always been this bridge between independent filmmakers outside the mainstream of Hollywood with unique stories to tell.
And Boston has been important to get the word out about their work.”For information on schedules, tickets and events, go to BAAFF.org.
