CAAMFest 

When: March 13-23 2014
Price: $10-$12
CAAMFest, the largest annual Asian and Asian-American film festival in the country, is often associated with San Francisco — it was formerly known as the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival — but it was actually founded in Berkeley 32 years ago. This year, the festival, which is organized by the Center for Asian American Media, is refocusing its efforts in the East Bay by holding 30 percent of its screenings at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (2626 Bancroft Way), the Oakland Museum of California (1000 Oak St.), and the New Parkway Theater (474 24th St., Oakland). The films showcase a wide range of experiences: East Side Sushi is about a Mexican-American dishwasher in Oakland who wants to become a sushi chef, Farah Goes Bang chronicles a young woman’s quest to lose her virginity while on a cross-country road trip, and the documentary The Sun Behind the Clouds looks at Tibetans’ struggle for independence. The festival’s closing night at the New Parkway will include a screening of Memories to Light 2.0, which is composed of edited home movie footage submitted by Asian Americans, set to a live score. A closing party will follow at Vessel Gallery (471 25th St., Oakland).
