13th Annual Asian American Film Festival

APRIL 19-22, 2018
Bijou Art Cinemas, Broadway Metro and University of Oregon


DisOrient is the premiere Asian American, social justice film festival of Oregon. Our films–“By us, for us and about us”–break open the one-dimensional stereotype of the “Oriental.” We believe in the power of film to inform, heal and connect people. We bring power to our voice as we share our stories and advocate for social justice.
