Rae and I returned last night from Pasadena, where we screened AUTUMN GEM at the Pacific Asia Museum. The museum had been holding a weekly film series for the past few months, and we were the last film on its summer schedule. PAM’s Becky Sun (Community Outreach Coordinator) and Amelia Chapman (Curator of Education) organized and advertised the event to PAM members. Along with our marketing efforts, we estimated about 70-80 people were present at the nighttime showing in the museum’s lovely courtyard. The weather was great and the screen and projector were in fine form; if only every screening could be held in such ideal conditions!
We had a great time meeting new people, along with friends and family. Thanks to Marc, Li Jing, and Rae’s cousins for attending the screening and bringing their friends. We got a number of good contacts for future screenings in Southern California.
