The mission of the Austin Asian American Film Festival (AAAFF) is to tell Asian and Asian American stories via media arts and help Asian Americans explore opportunities in cinema.

We do this by showcasing the best in new Asian and Asian American cinema at our annual film festival, and through year-round screenings and special events.
