AABANY has secured a LIMITED NUMBER of tickets to the 2013 Asian American International Film Festival Opening Night Premiere of LINSANITY on July 24, 2013 at 7:30pm at the Asia Society.
In 2012, Jeremy Lin, the first Chinese American to play in the NBA, swept the NBA and basketball fans by storm and created the Linsanity movement. LINSANITY brings back the unforgettable frenzy around the meteoric rise of Jeremy Lin with galvanizing game footage, juxtaposed with intimate interviews and home videos that showcase his faith, passion, and perseverance. As the Opening Night Presentation for AAIFF’13, LINSANITY marks the homecoming of the magical moment when a determined young man did what seemed impossible, and took everyone to the heights with him.
We are now offering to AABANY Members only the exclusive opportunity to bid on these tickets. In addition to admission to the screening of “Linsanity,” the Opening Night Presentation tickets also come with the following benefits:
* Gala Reception featuring open bar with specialty cocktails sponsored by Remy Martin and beer sponsored by Grolsch Beer;
* Chef’s Tasting Tables from local restaurant supporters; and
* Gala Gift Bag valued at $50+.
