Pitt to launch Asian film festival and media series from September 2020.

In its latest newsletter, the University of Pittsburgh's Asian Studies Center has announced that it, in collaboration with Pitt's Film Studies Program, will launch Screenshot: Asia from September 2020.
The Asian Studies Center--in collaboration with the Film Studies Program--is thrilled to announce Screenshot: Asia, its new film and media series and Asian festival. The festival is set to premiere in September 2020. To welcome this new series, we will host a few preliminary screenings during the 2019-2020 academic year. There will be a screening for Nostalgia for the Future on Monday, September 30 from 4:15 PM to 6 PM in 407 Cathedral of Learning. A reception and screening for Dragonfly Eyes will be held on Tuesday, October 8 at 4:30 in Frick Fine Arts Auditorium. A lecture and film screening of Godzilla on My Mind will be on Wednesday, October 16 at 6:30 PM in the WPU Assembly Room.
Pittsburgh has been without its Asian film festival ever since Silk Screen closed last fall due to a history of sexual harassment by its executive officer.
