Los Angeles Asian Film Awards, originally called Las Vegas Asian Film Awards (LVAFA), was an independent festival that resides beneath the umbrella of AOF MegaFest, which is in its 19th year and is the largest film event of its kind in the world. Held in Las Vegas at the Premiere Theaters and Locations, the show regularly exceeds 20,000 guests and attendees.
After a first successful annual event in Las Vegas with the legendary AOF MegaFest in the summer of 2021, the event moved to Los Angeles, the center of the world film industry.
We invite you to join Festival Director, award-winning filmmaker Lureen Wu and Judge President Roger Christiansen ("Friends," "Hannah Montana," "Tango Down") as they bring you a selection of pure Asian Cinema for Screenings and Awards.
Los Angeles Asian Film Awards 2022 is sponsored by "DeRUCCI" (Lead Sponsor) and Final Draft(Sponsor).
