Meniscus Magazine Tapped as Official Sponsor for 2011 Singafest Asian Film Festival

Meniscus Magazine (www.meniscuszine.com), an online arts and entertainment magazine, was chosen as an official media sponsor for the inaugural Singafest Asian Film Festival in Los Angeles.  The festival, which runs from Sept. 29-Oct. 2, 2011, will take place at several venues in the Westwood neighborhood and features film screenings, industry panels, guest appearances and parties throughout four packed days.

For Singafest, Meniscus is involved with three major events:

  • Singafest Asian Film Festival Kickoff Party (Sept. 29, 8 p.m.): Meniscus is co-hosting Singafest’s opening party at the Whiskey Blue, W Hotel Westwood, with main presenter L.A. Weekly, and fellow hosts and sponsors Sapporo, Bigfoot Entertainment, FilAm Creative and C.A.P.E., among others.  The party will honor some of the filmmakers involved with this year’s Singafest, including Sonny Chiba (who will be presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award), Eli Roth and Doze Niu.  Meniscus will provide special gifts for guests, including branded keychains and popcorn bags, as well as USB drives containing our staff members’ 10 favorite Asian film reviews from various festivals.  Attendance is free and RSVPs are mandatory at http://singafestparty.cocodot.com.
