On October 21st, the 2010 Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival will begin. Featuring films made by and starring Asian Americans, this event will celebrate its third year in Philadelphia as a growing voice of diversity for the film community. Over on the PAAFF website you can see the current lineup of films and events. Among the events is A Conversation With Greg Pak on Saturday, October 23rd. A description of the event follows:
PAAFF is excited to present a free special event with Greg Pak, award-winning director of “Robot Stories” and writer of acclaimed Marvel Comics storylines such as “Planet Hulk,” “World War Hulk,” “Incredible Hercules” (with Fred Van Lente), and “Magneto Testament.” Greg’s latest short film, “Mr.Green” starring Tim Kang (The Mentalist) is an Official Selection at PAAFF ’10. Greg will be in attendance for live Q&A and will also be receiving the 2010 PAAFF Emerging Voice Award. For the latest about Greg’s work, visit www.gregpak.com and twitter.com/gregpak.
There will be a few prize giveaways for this event so that gives you even more of an incentive to attend. Also, in addition to appearing at the PAAFF that Saturday, Greg Pak will be doing a one hour signing event with our friends over at Brave New Worlds in Old City beginning at 3:30pm.
For more information on that event head over to the Brave New World’s website. Information on where this film festival event will be held is below. We at Geekadelphia hope you attend a screening or two and enjoy the festivities.
