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.
