The 2021 Colorado Dragon Boat Film Festival, in partnership with Denver Film, featured 12 films and 2 shorts packages. This year’s virtual festival focused on strengthening the Asian and AAPI communities, while educating the public about the depth and breadth of Denver’s diverse culture and people, displayed through traditional and contemporary Asian and Asian American cinematography.
The theme for the 6th annual festival was “representAsian,” which focused on films, organizations, and individuals that boldly highlighted Asian and Asian American culture and identity.
We chose the theme of ‘representASIAN’ for this year's film festival because now more than ever it is important to boldly highlight the amazing accomplishments coming out of our community. The amount of talent coming from the Asian and AAPI community is vast and too often hidden from the mainstream media. We are working to change that.
Colorado Dragon Boat is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization advocates for the Asian American Pacific Islander communities through our three programs: the Colorado Dragon Boat Festival, the Colorado Dragon Boat Film Festival, and the AAPI Emerging Leaders Program.
