The mission of Northwest Asian American Film Festival 2003 is twofold:
- To showcase the works of Asian American artists living or working in the Northwest
- To bring Asian American works from across North America to the Seattle filmgoing audience
Seattle is renowned for both the sophistication of its film enthusiasts and the vibrancy of its Asian American community. It is our hope that this film festival will occupy a place of distinction both among the many notable film festivals that make Seattle their home and among the greater family of Asian American film festivals.
