27th San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival Award Winners

From March 12 to 22 the fest will take place in San Francisco and San Jose. The fest has many interesting Asian and Asian American films, many known to the blog but there are some films that really called my attention and I include them here. I suggest browsing the site as there are many gay interest Asian films and some Women Stories that seem very interesting.

The Panda Candy, Peng Lei, China 2007 – Lesbian interest.
Fruit Fly, H. P. Mendoza, USA - the hijacking of The Umbrellas of Cherbourg???. Lesbian and gay interest.
