BuzzFeed Panel at SDAFF

The BuzzFeed Panel for SDAFF at UC San Diego with Eugene Yang, Mallory Wang, and moderator Anna Akana.  Plus dinner from Rigoberto’s Taco Shop.

Hello from San Diego!  I’ve been to the San Diego Asian Film Festival almost every year since Saving Face premiered there a decade ago.  This time, it’s Abe’s turn to be in the spotlight!  He was on a sold-out BuzzFeed Panel with Eugene Yang, Mallory Wang, and moderator Anna Akana at UC San Diego.

Remember this video he directed – If Asian Said the Stuff White People Say?  They talked about stuff like that.

I had to pay him back for 10 years of sitting around waiting, holding my stuff while he did a meet and greet…

…that lasted almost 1.5 hours!!!

Afterwards, we stopped by Rigoberto’s Taco Shop for dinner.


I actually got a Greek Salad next door because I was still stuffed from this feast, but I did have a bite of Abe’s Breakfast Burrito and it was tremendous.


BuzzFeed is being honored with SDAFF’s Digital Pioneer Award tonight at The Gala (<—click to watch past video).  I’ll be working too (presenting Best Documentary Feature) so I have no idea who is going to hold my purse for red carpet photos.
