What we're about

This is a fun group for film lovers, film makers, actors, artists and supporters of the Asian American community to meet new people and enjoy/discuss films, actors, film makers and the Asian American arts scene in Chicago. Each month we will try to select a film, a show or an exhibit featuring Asian American Actor(s), a documentary about Asian Americans or a film by an Asian American filmmaker and discuss our thoughts afterward about the film over a beverage at the local watering hole.

This group is sponsored by The Foundation for Asian American Independent Media (FAAIM).

FAAIM's Mission:

*Educate communities. Asian American and mainstream, local and national - about Asian American history and issues.

*Introduce Asian American perspectives into the ongoing self-definition of or multicultural society in Chicago, the Midwest, and the United States.

*Foster understanding across lines of race, ethnicity, religion, age, and region.

*Sustain growth and encourage excellence in Asian American culture, and elevate Chicago's place within it.
