The Austin Asian American Film Festival's 14th annual edition will feature headliner screenings like Tom Huang’s comedy Dealing With Dad, which will open the festival. Other headliner screenings include Spotlight selection So Yun Um’s Liquor Store Dreams, and Kurdwin Ayub’s Sonne, which will close the film festival. 

AAAFF will screen 11 feature films (six narrative, five documentary), and 16 short films as part of their ongoing mission to produce programs that champion Asian and Asian American stories through film, educate about AAPI issues, and build community through partnerships with creatives and other organizations. The in-person/in-theater event will feature several filmmaker appearances and post-screening Q&As, as well as a red carpet gala presentation prior to the Closing Night screening.
