Fresh off the press the new Pacific Rim Film Festival
Working on the program next ads and slides for sponsors. Thank you all the great sponsors. And of course the Ow Family for their generous support every year. I'm glad to be apart of the staff. Their are some great films in the Festival as always.
We're excited to be celebrating our 23rd year here at the Pacific Rim Film Festival and look forward to sharing with you the pick of the contenders for the 2011 season. For six days, from October 14-19, we bring you work from filmmakers spanning the Pacific rim: Japan, South Korea, China, New Zealand, The Philippines, India, Mexico, Australia and the U.S.
Our local artists include Bay Area filmmakers Greg Miller and Brian Lilla with their film 'Patagonia Rising,' our benefit finale film. We are also proud to present the premiere of Santa Cruzan Eric Thiermann's film 'It Tolls for Thee.'
True to our theme of 'When Strangers Meet', we offer films with a mission to foster cross-cultural understanding and strive to share our films with the broadest audience possible. To this end we offer our films free of charge to our patrons for the entire festival with the exception of the finale benefit event.
We are funded completely by the support of our community and are especially indebted to Ow Family Properties, whose gracious beneficence has allowed us to carry on our mission each year. We welcome and appreciate your support in any way that you feel inspired and able. Check out our 'We Want You' page for suggestions.
Take a look at the film schedule, share the trailers with your friends, make plans and mark your calendars. And get there early - we always fill up.
We'll see you at the theatre!
