The Asian Film Festival of Dallas (AFFD) is a film festival held annually in July or August in Dallas, Texas. The festival programming consists of international films from Asia as well as Asian-American features and shorts. The festival is held primarily at Landmark Theatres' Magnolia Theatre in the West Village, Dallas, Texas. With a typical slate of 25-30 feature films and 20 short films, the week-long festival is the largest Asian-themed film festival in the southwestern United States.

The festival presents jury prizes for best short and feature films entered in competition, as well as an Audience Award.

History[edit]

The Asian Film Festival of Dallas began in March 2002 as a four day long curated festival presenting 12 features from 5 countries. Films screened in the first year included the Dallas premiere of Battle Royale (film) and repertory screenings of classic Asian films, such as Raise the Red Lantern and Seven Samurai.[1] The festival was founded by Dallas local and aspiring filmmaker Mye Hoang as a way to share Asian films with Dallas audiences.[2]

The festival expanded to a week-long event in 2003 and added a juried competition.
