UCSD Alumni invites you to join us at the 14th Annual San Diego Asian Film Festival for a special campus homecoming with Wong Fu Productions! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to hear from the three UC San Diego alumni who created Wong Fu Productions as they talk about their journey from UCSD, to digital media stardom and their current projects. Afterward, mingle with them at their exclusive After Party at the Loft.
This special night also includes a screening of 2007 Visual Arts alumnus Byron Q’s film Raskal Love, a follow-up to his 2011 feature BangBang.

About Wong Fu Productions
Celebrating their 10th year of filmmaking, Wong Fu Productions was created in 2003, when Wesley Chan, ’06, Ted Fu, ’06, and Philip Wang, ’06, were UC San Diego Visual Arts students producing homemade videos and uploading them on whatever servers they could find. When YouTube took off, so did they. A decade later, Chan, Fu, and Wang have in many ways become the new faces of digital media, and those faces have brought Asian Americans into a certain kind of mainstream. The three former classmates have also become, without a doubt, the most influential figures in Asian American cinema today. Help us welcome them back to UC San Diego for a special homecoming!
About the San Diego Asian Film Festival
The 14th Annual San Diego Asian Film Festival takes place November 7-16, 2013 throughout San Diego. Recently named by USA Today as one of the 10 reasons to visit San Diego, the annual San Diego Asian Film Festival is the flagship event of Pacific Arts Movement (formerly the San Diego Asian Film Foundation), a non-profit media arts organization specializing in Asian and Asian American cinema.
Founded in 2000, the Festival has grown to become the largest exhibition of Asian cinema in the western United States, and has showcased everything from future classics like Bong Joon-ho’s Memories of Murder (U.S. Premiere), to luminary independent work like Patrick Wang’s award-winning In the Family (North American Premiere).
