Congrats to the winners of our BETTER LUCK TOMORROW 15th anniversary screening ticket giveaway: Trent Nakamura and Cindy Chu! They’ll be joining us this Thursday, April 27, at the beautiful Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood for the opening night of Visual Communications‘ 2017 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival (LAAPFF), which kicks off with the screening of the rare Sundance version of the film. YOMYOMF is the community co-presenter for the event.

BLT director and YOMYOMF Founder Justin Lin will be in attendance as well as much of the cast and crew including our own Sung Kang and Roger Fan. The screening will be followed by a Q&A and a reception with food and drinks.

Which is to say–if you’re in L.A., come out and join us. It’s not too late to purchase tickets, but they’re going fast so click here.

And show your support for Asian American cinema by supporting LAAPFF in both L.A. and Orange County over the next week. Click here for the full schedule and come out to see the BLT gang and other YOMYOMFers at the C3 Conference this weekend as well.

And if you want a taste of what to expect this Thursday, check out this video from the 2011 opening night of LAAPFF where Justin’s FAST FIVE had its L.A. premiere. Justin was in Europe and couldn’t attend so his friends put this together:
