“[F]ilm screenings, panel discussions, activity booths and workshops” will be held at Ithaca College, Cornell, and Cinemapolis.

The five-day festival strives to present “material relevant to Asian American experiences and encourage audiences to rethink their ideas about race, agency and ideologies,” according to a news release.

The project, led by students and faculty from Ithaca College, was created in collaboration with Cornell, SUNY Binghamton, and the greater Ithaca community.

“Through the festival, IPAAFF aims to support Asian American film, video and media makers around the upstate New York region, as well as nationwide. The festival works to promote films created by, starring and/or about Asian Americans,” the release adds.
