Asian Australian Films, Forum & Network (AAFFN)
An online hub, forum and network dedicated to showcasing the Asian Australian screen scene, creative industries, writers, academics, activists and community workers.
The Asian Australian Film Forum and Network (AAFFN) began as a volunteer run network that aims to showcase Asian diasporic films and screen talent both on and behind the screen, including Asian diasporic actors, producers, directors, writers, screen artists and film scholars. In recent times, we have aimed to evolve to promote spaces, productions and broader exchanges of allyship and solidarity across Asian and non-Asian communities. In particular, elevating on Twitter @aaffn the important and leading work of First Nations academics, creatives, activists, journalists and various media and voices of Indigenous Peoples.
Special thank you to Matt Huynh for our official artwork ‘Lion Dancers’ and ‘Audience’.
