Attention West Coast drama fans! san-diego-asian-film-fest-2009DramaFever recommends a trip to San Diego this October for the 10th Annual San Diego Asian Film Festival. Yes, the 10th Annual! This year marks a decade that the San Diego Asian Film Foundation has been bringing great Asian entertainment to film fans.

The festival runs for two weeks with films from all over Asia: Cambodia, South Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Vietnam, India, and Asian films not from Asia - so add in Asian American and Asian Canadian films.

Film highlights include Children of Invention (USA), Thirst (South Korea), Be Sure To Share (Japan), Beast Stalker (Hong Kong), 9500 Liberty (USA) and Red Cliff (China).
