Asians On Film Festival Winners: Winter 2012

When we opened our first year of honoring films, we expected attention to be light as we geared up, so imagine our surprise at all the wonderful films we received and enjoyed. Our goal is to honor films with awards (short films quarterly, feature films semi-annually) and then revisit the winning films at the end of the year to determine the best of 2012. Our winter quarter awards have been announced and we are accepting films for Spring 2012! Congratulations to the winners and those who came so close to winning (honorable mentions)!
