10th ANNUAL DISORIENT Asian American FILM FESTIVAL

April 17 – 19, 2015
Bijou Art Cinemas Eugene, Oregon

 

 

Celebrating the 10th anniversary, the DisOrient Asian American Film Festival of Oregon returned April 17, 18th & 19th, 2015 to the Bijou Art Cinemas in Eugene, Oregon. DisOrient is a social justice film festival dedicated to deconstructing the media stereotypes of Asians and Asian Americans as “Orientals”. We believe in the power of film-as-art to educate, heal and improve the lives of people by giving voice to our experiences.

The VIP Pass of DisOrient 2015 ($75 pre-sale and $80 at the door) had a limited availability and sold quickly.  The pass included the Official DisOrient T-shirt (while supplies lasted), gift bag (while supplies lasted), priority seating, and All-Access Pass to all films April 17th – April 19th, 2015 as well as to the catered Opening Night Reception and Closing Night Awards Gala.  The VIP Pass also gave exclusive access to the Green Room to relax and enjoy food and beverages throughout the Festival.
