Visual Communications is proud to present the 38th Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival (LAAPFF) from May 5 to May 13, 2022. The Festival will feature a robust lineup of in-person programming, along with virtual programming for our audiences at home in Southern California and beyond. Remember to confirm with the festival all covid protocols and guidelines -(proof of vaccination and masks MAY be required), prior to booking tickets.

From traditionally showcasing a singular film on Opening and Closing night, this year’s Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival eschews that practice as it presents programs that reflect the spectrum of Asian stories. Centering the work that Visual Communications have done for over five decades, its legacy is shared through the works of emerging voices (Armed With A Camera) and our beloved elders (Digital Histories), along with the VC Archives.
