Asians on Film Festival of Shorts has completed our Spring Quarter (April-May-June) and that means we are halfway through the year. Spring 2018 winners include not one, but TWO firsts! The Best Director award went to a Fantasy/Sci-fi film, KINTSUGI, and they Best Actor award went to ANDY MARQUES for his work in TWO film submissions in which he starred, FIRST IMPRESSIONS and RUNNERS.

Our festival works by reviewing films by quarters and announcing quarterly winners.
