NOTE: AOF 2020 film submissions for our Jan 2021 film festival will move to an online format. AWARDS will still be given out!

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.

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

    One of the best film festivals I have had the pleasure of working with. Scott and Stephen have great communication and are EXTREMELY proactive on social media ensuring that my film 'Tita' got as much coverage as possible. We even shot a Q&A which was really rewarding and only strengthened my experience of AOF. I will absolutely be submitting future films with AOF. Thanks Scott and Stephen for an awesome film festival experience!

    Asians on Film runs a top notch film festival. It's an honor to have my short documentary "The 3 Day Nun" selected among high quality Asian films. Stephen and Scott had great communication, plus I really appreciate how much they promote the festival and each film! It was fun to do a Q & A about my film. Highly recommend Asians on Film! They are incredible champions for Asian Voices and Stories. Kob Koon Mak Ka / Thank you very much Asians on Films !!

  • Asians on Film was an extremely we'll organized and fun festival event. They have a very hip screening venue in the heart of Los Angeles. The festival programmers selected some really excellent films in a wide variety of genres. We had a great time meeting all the talented filmmakers and watching the selected films.
