Asians on Film is an 501 (C)3 non-profit devoted to arts & entertainment with a primary focus in providing recognition to the talent of Asian/Pacific Islanders who are minorities in the film industry either as actors, actresses, writers, directors, producers, editors and/or those who work in other aspects of filmmaking. We are committed to promotion via news, information, interviews and recognition given by the festival.

Our Film Festival is an extension of our website, our Facebook pages, and our youtube page With readership around the world we expect the marriage of the website and the festival will provide an amazing forum and recognition for great films.

Quarterly recognition and festival "best" awards in the categories of Drama, Fantasy/Sci-Fi, Thriller/Horror, Documentary, Animation, Action/Adventure, Comedy, Music Video, Director, Ensemble Cast, Actor, Actress, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Script, Cinematography, Editing, and Original Score.

For us the rules are simple. We want filmmakers to tell us where their film fits and diversity is encouraged in all aspects of filmmaking, story telling and how a story is told. Eligible films must have Asian/Pacific Islanders involved in some major aspect of a film project either producing, writing, directing, acting, cinematography or editing and in accordance with our mission and goals.
