The China Club holds five events a year. These events take place in September, November, January, March and May. Events normally take place the third Friday of the month.

Please join us  Friday, Jan. 19 for a behind the scenes look at the upcoming Seattle Asian American Film Festival (SAAFF) which will run Feb. 22-25.  Festival co-founder Vanessa Au has assembled a panel of their staff including co-director and independent filmmaker, Martin Tran, opening night entertainment producer Victoria Ju, and grant writer and associate professor at the UW Department of Communication, Leilani Nishime.  Together they will discuss the history of the festival, why it's important, and why they dedicate their time and energy into putting on SAAFF.  This will be a lively and entertaining program ahead of Chinese New Year where the panel will share some highlights of the upcoming festival!

SAAFF showcases feature-length and short format films by and about Asian Americans across North America, with an emphasis on filmmakers from the Pacific Northwest.

SAAFF is the only film festival in Seattle to provide a space for Asian American voices, perspectives and histories by screening independent films that reflect the diversity and richness of the city’s Asian American community. The China Club is very pleased to be hosting this one of a kind event to allow our members and guests an up-close look at the world of Asian American independent film.
