Late Spring Wins Over the Crowds, Jury at 2014 Asian Film Festival of Dallas

Late Spring
See what you missed?

It was another good year for the Asian Film Festival of Dallas. In its 13th year, AFFD is the pre-teen of local film festivals, with enough action, drama, and comedy to exhaust even the most ardent devotee. Audiences packed in to see new releases, like Samurai Hustle, and animated classics like Lupin III: Castle of Cagliostro. And on Thursday - the festival's final day - the AFFD jury selected its choices for festival winners.

In what was the closet we'll come to the Oscars in Dallas in July, a jury consisting of a broad spectrum of members of the film and arts community, sifted through more than 60 films to pick the best of the best in different categories. If you missed the festival, we've got good news: Premiere Video stocks a good number of international films. Oh, and the Internet.
