About disorientfilm

DisOrient Asian American Film Festival of Oregon is a social justice film festival dedicated to deconstructing the media stereotypes of Asians and Asian Americans as "Orientals." We believe in the power of film-as-art to educate, heal and improve the lives of people by giving voice to their experiences. Started in 2006 by artists, educators, and activists, DisOrient is a grassroots and volunteer-run film festival committed to presenting honest portrayals of the diversity of the Asian American experience. When selecting new and exciting films for our festival, we use the W.E.B. DuBois standard of "for us, by us, or about us" that are recent and undistributed works.
