Welcome to the 33rd Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival! After months of anticipation, we are pleased to bring you another exciting eight days of film and events from April 27th to May 4th, 2017 in hopes to create spaces for connection and add to the dialogues of change. Opening Night is an intro/retrospective look at Justin Lin's BETTER LUCK TOMORROW, a landmark for Asian American cinema in 2002. Closing Night is Kogonada's COLUMBUS, featuring leading man John Cho. Interposed is our Centerpiece film highlight Justin Chon's GOOK, as we commemorate the L.A. Riots on its 25th anniversary.
