On June 6th, we’ll be hosting our InFocus: Female Cinema Film Festival, which includes two shorts programs rich with a variety of stories, genres and perspectives from female filmmakers, along with Romance Analyst, an exciting new feature by writer-director Rachel Wortell.

On June 7th, our InFocus will be Asian Cinema with a pair of shorts programs featuring work by talented Asian and Asian-American directors, including three world premieres. The day’s programming concludes with polyamorous dramedy First Blush, the feature film debut of director Victor Neumark.
Each screening will be followed by live Q&A’s via Zoom. Emily V Gordon (co-writer of The Big Sick) will be moderating the Romance Analyst Q&A on June 6th, and Jeff Yang (Journalist at CNN and Head of Global Futures) will be moderating the InFocus: Asian Cinema Shorts Program #1 on June 7th.
