The San Diego Asian Film Festival
celebrates its eleventh season at the Mission Valley UltraStar
Cinema at Hazard Center, October
21-28. During the Festival’s Gala
Awards Dinner on October 23, the Festival will present actor Daniel Dae Kim
with the INFLUENTIAL ASIAN AMERICAN ARTIST award.
“There are very few actors, not to
mention Asian American actors, who have the privilege of starring in
back-to-back popular television series like Daniel Dae Kim,” says San Diego
Asian Film Foundation executive director, Lee Ann Kim. “Through his groundbreaking role on
LOST and now his role on HAWAII FIVE-O, he has opened and continues to open
doors for other Asian American artists.
He also serves as a role model off-camera as an advocate for Asian
American issues and a devoted father.
We are grateful he is joining us to accept this award.”
