New York Asian Film Festival
The New York Asian Film Festival is a new annual film festival, with two different locations for showings.

June 16-July 1 at Anthology Film Archives and the ImaginAsian.

The annual New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) is Subway Cinema's flagship event and America's leading showcase for popular Asian Cinema. Each year, Subway Cinema's programmers watch hundreds of recent Asian films and pick 30 that make the earth move and bells ring. The enthusiastic audiences pack the festival's screenings from sun up to sundown (in 2005, the attendance was over 7,000).
The Festival's theaters:

The Anthology Film Archives, an internationally renowned home for independent and avant-garde cinema, is located in the heart of Manhattan's hip East Village neighborhood. The Anthology's exterior was featured in Sam Raimi's SPIDERMAN 2, as Dr. Otto Octavius's laboratory.

The ImaginAsian - New York City 's premier Asian American theater, dedicated to showcasing the world of Asian and Asian American cinema and culture. From international box-office smash hits to critically acclaimed independent films, the theater hosts the most diverse and highest-quality titles hailing from the U.S. and all over Asia.
