Crazy Talented Asians&Friends @ Flushing Town Hall

Tax deductible
Dear Friends,

We ask you to join us in supporting our crazy talented Asian artists in programs that highlight Asian perspectives and their diverse creative talents.

We believe that Asian American artists and their stories need to be heard and be cherished more than ever. Please stand with the diverse Asian American community and support telling their stories by making a donation. We recommend $20 but welcome any amount. We sincerely thank you for the support!

Crazy Talented Asians & Friends (CTAF) is a community-led program series dedicated to works by Asian Americans and their friends—to showcase the diverse creativity and impact this community has to offer, while bringing together families, friends, and audiences from different backgrounds to celebrate their stories.

Produced by the CTAF team and presented by Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts, dba Flushing Town Hall (FTH), a member of NYC’s Cultural Institutions Group (CIG) and a Smithsonian Affiliate, please join us at the 4th Animation Short Films Festival - "Big Screen. Mixer Party. Meet the Judges." on Sunday, February 18th at 6pm for the screening, and at 7:30pm for drinks and snack at the mixer party.

The Festival will showcase a dozen creative animation short films by Asian/Asian American animators. These films are selected from over a thousand of films submitted to this specific event. They tell a wide range of stories and experiences in outstanding art direction, storytelling, animation, production, and sound design—as diverse and talented as the Asian American community itself. This year’s jury is led by Gonzo Janer, Festival Lead Advisor, Animator at Nickelodeon and Character Animation and Thesis Director at School of Visual Arts l Chris Colby, collaborated with renowned studios and brands, including Imaginary Forces, Google, Kate Spade, among others l Nicolas Manrique, Emmy-nominated and Principal of motion graphics at Rockstar Games l Wendy Zhao, 2023 Princess Grace Award in Film and Animation and adjunct faculty at Queens College l Dr. Chi-Sui Wang, Executive Curator at Kuandu International Animation Festival The event will be streamed live on YouTube as well as in person at the historic Flushing Town Hall.

Your financial support will go a long way for CTAF and Flushing Town Hall. Flushing Town Hall’s mission is to provide global arts for a global community. The organization restores, manages, and programs the landmark building in Flushing, Queens, NYC. Your gift will fund CTAF programs, including the honorarium for the artists, marketing and production costs.
