Beginning February 20 and ending the 23, the Colorado Dragon Film Festival will screen more than a dozen Asian movies at the Sie Film Center, in addition to hosting panel discussions with the filmmakers, according to 5280. With Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite (2019) making history at the Oscars, Jon M. Chu’s Crazy Rich Asians (2018) becoming one of the highest-grossing romantic comedies ever, and Lulu Wang’s The Farewell (2019) garnering rave reviews, Asian cinema is dominating the conversation. Sara Moore, executive director of Dragon 5280 (the nonprofit that oversees the film festival), says wellness and community are this year’s themes.
