This is a bold new vision by Creative Yatra in association with UISAC (Universal Institute for Successful Aging of Carolinas (UISAC) and CAHA (Charlotte Asian Heritage Association). The group of Asian American community members are organizing the film festival featuring variety of Asian films (with English subtitles) in partnership with UNC Charlotte. The second festival is planned as part of the International Film Festival by UNC Charlotte which is an annual event screening some of the best films from all around the world.

The festival will primarily support Asian filmmakers to showcase their talents. The event will show short to full length movies and documentaries of Asian cultural, social and historical significance by Asian as well as non-Asian filmmakers. The festival will host filmmakers for a reception and audience engagement. The festival will be a marquee event for the city with support from Charlotte Film Festival, Charlotte Film Society and Light Factory with the goal to promote alternate films.

Overall Rating
  • It's indeed a huge pleasure presenting my new film in your festival! It's the only Filipino film selected this year and it is truly an honor representing the Philippines. Most importantly, I am very thrilled that, through our film, you were able to see a glimpse of Hiligaynon poetry and how I was able to view it from my perspective. Padayon! (Long live!)
