Since 2004, the CUNY Asian American Film Festival (AAFF) has recognized and awarded over $7,200 in cash prizes to student filmmakers enrolled at the City University of New York. The CUNY AAFF helps to promote the artistic visual talents and stimulate communication among CUNY students who are separated by the different campuses spread across the five boroughs, and serve as a central location to display their creative works among colleagues involved in the same field of study and interest.
On the evening of the Festival, all winners and runner-ups in the categories of Experimental, Fiction, and Documentary Film will remain anonymous until after a screening of selected films that have been reviewed by our distinguished panel of judges. Following the screening will be an award ceremony and Q&A session with the winners and runner-ups.
