After a six year break the Seattle Asian American Film Festival returned this year to the Wing Luke Museum. Life on Four Strings was screened for the first time in Seattle to a sold out audience. Since many people were not able to purchase tickets in time we hope to screen bring the film to Seattle again soon. The screening was co-sponsored by the Seattle Ukulele Players Association (SUPA).

The Television Critics Association holds their national press tour twice a year for networks and cable companies to present their shows for the upcoming season. Reporters from all over the country gather in Pasadena, CA to preview films and listen to panels.
