As some of you know, I'm a juror at this event. Today is day one. I'm hanging out in the car ride from the airport when "ring" my phone goes off and poof it's cousin Dan Auto calling me for lunch. We go to a Yucatan spot on Valencia and 15th.
The film event was the opening film Finishing the Game by Justin Lin. It made it's SF premier and opened this film fest. It is one of the twelve films I need to watch. Since I'm a juror, I'll give no opinions of the film yet. Enjoy the photos. We also went to the after party at the Asian Museum, and then ate Sushi, then went to Jade Bar where there was yet another event. There, I see Justin, Sung Kang, Quinten Lee, Karin Anna Cheung, and many other great folks including festival organizers like Chi-hui Yang, and others. People are friendly when they get a little bit of liquids in them!
