Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival

The Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival is the third largest film festival focusing on films by and about Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the US and largest on the East Coast. Since 2018, I have been designing PAAFF's campaing art and managing their Instagram account.

  • PAAFF 2019 poster. Social media info lines the top of the poster. November 7-17 2019 date below. Colorful filmstrip recedes into a time portal leading to PAAFF logo. Get tickets at paaff.org and presenting sponsor: Comcast below. Starry space background.
  • With the theme, “Passage of Time,” PAAFF 2019 focused on the past, present, and future of the Asian American Movement and film. To evoke the feeling of traveling through a portal of time, I developed this sci-fi movie inspired poster with an allusion to the film festival’s twelfth season through an illuminated XII on the clock. This concept was applied to a variety of print and digital marketing materials.

    In addition to the program book cover and festival badges, this design was also used on vertical and horizontal banners, stickers, and web and social media graphics.
