This is another great event for our friends in the Bay Area, especially if you live close to Stanford!
The Intercollegiate Taiwanese American Students Association (ITASA) has invited all Hyphen supporters to its Night Market and Culture Night, both a part of its 2007 West Coast Conference titled Rekindling the Flame.
Of course, the Hyphen team will be there to meet and greet our supporters from the community and spread the Hyphen love. So, if you're looking for a night of excitement or if you're just really really really hungry (read my list of food below), we will see you there!
I was eating dinner at the Westfield mall in downtown SF the other day when I saw Bobby Lee. Bobby Lee! You know, of Mad TV. He plays every Asian character from Connie Chung to Kim Jong-il. You may have also seen him as an overeager college student in Harold & Kumar. I last saw him on screen in Chris Chan Lee's Undoing at the SF Asian American Intl Film Fest, where he had a brief role. He is 1/4 of the Asian American touring stand-up show and DVD The Kims of Comedy. (Not familiar with Bobby Lee? Watch this MadTV parody of Memoirs of a Geisha)
Bay Area folks (or those of you down for some driving), check out this free event over the weekend. Our friends over at UC Berkeley's Asian Pacific American Student Development (APASD) and Asian American Studies program are presenting their 17th Annual Asian Pacific Islander Issues Conference titled FROM THE GROUND UP: Breaking Barriers, Building Coalitions. And it costs absolutely nothing (on your end, that is).
If you haven't noticed yet, applications to be a contestant in this year's Mr. Hyphen contest are due soon! April 15, to be exact.
The Mr. Hyphen 2007 contest will take place on June 9th at the Oakland Asian Community Center--mark your calendars!

So I have been thinking about what to write for this blog entry for a couple of days. As a Hyphen blogger/editor and usual attendee of the film festival, I decided to watch some screeners of films from this year's San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival and blog about them.
