An Asian / Asian-American Film Festival is dear to the heart of the Aurora Asian/Pacific Community Partnership.  We know how much work goes into a festival and how educational and fun it can be!  Between 1997 and 2007, the Partnership, in cooperation with the Denver Film Society, held the first pan-Asian film festival in the region.  Besides the film, we enjoyed many receptions with delicious Asian cuisine provided by many Aurora restaurants, caterers and members of the pan-Asian communities.  There was nothing quite like it.  Then the recession of 2008 hit, and funding dried up,...
