Film Review

The Festival

In May 2006, Silk Screen held its first annual Asian-American Film Festival. This was the first event of its kind in the Pittsburgh region. The Festival begins with an Opening Night Gala, where over 350 guests enjoyed performances and food from across Asia. The eight-day Festival showcased 22 films, drawing an audience of over 2,000 people. Ten actors and directors came to Pittsburgh to present their films and engaged with the public in various events during the Festival. National press coverage was achieved. The Wall Street Journal mentioned the efforts of Silk Screen in a complimentary way.
