Physical Characteristics and Technical Requirements

Portions of this unprocessed collection are either in fragile condition, poorly housed, or loose. Therefore, in certain instances preservation concerns may take precedence, and, at the discretion of Library staff, some materials may not be available for use.

Audiovisual Access Policies and Procedures

Access to audiovisual materials in this collection is available through digitized access copies. Researchers may view an item's original container, but the media themselves are not available for playback because of preservation concerns. Materials that have already been digitized are noted in the collection's finding aid and can be requested in our reading room.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

Donated by John C. Woo on behalf of Asican CineVision, Inc. in 2007; additional materials were donated by the organization in 2011, 2013, 2017, and 2018. The accession numbers associated with this gift are 2008.007, 2008.008, NPA.2008.008, 2011.042, 2013.003, 2017.045, and 2018.135.

http://www.asiancinevision.org/ and http://aaiff.org/2014/ were initially selected by curators and captured through the use of The California Digital Library's Web Archiving Service in 2014 as part of the Arts and Cultural Left Web Archive. In 2015, these websites were migrated to Archive-It. Archive-It uses web crawling technology to capture websites at a scheduled time and displays only an archived copy, from the resulting WARC file, of the website. In 2018, http://aaiff.org/2018/ was added from a redirect of http://aaiff.org/. In 2019, http://aaiff.org/2015/, http://aaiff.org/2016/, and http://aaiff.org/2017/ were added. The accession number associated with these websites is 2019.125. In May 2020, https://filmfreeway.com/aaiff43/ was added. The accession number assoicated with this website is 2020.039. In September 2020, https://www.aaiff.org/ was added. The accession number assoicated with this website is 2021.045.

Processing Information

Processing decisions made prior to 2014 have not been recorded.

In 2014, the archived websites were added as Series V. The original finding aid was reformatted from a Word document to EAD in 2014.

In 2017, three boxes of inventories and festival programs were added to Series I: Administrative Files as boxes 311-313. Two floppy disks included in this donation were inventoried and forensically imgaged.

In 2018, two boxes of festival programs, publications, and office files were removed from hanging folders and rehoused in acid-free boxes. At the time of accessioning, these materials were added to the file list in Series I: Administrative Files. They have not been arranged by the archivist and are in the order in which they were received by the donor.

In 2019-2020, the archived websites were added to the finding aid.

In 2020, 109 tapes from Series III, Sub-series A were digitized and described on the file level.

In 2021, some narrative description was edited to more accurately describe the forced removal and incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. Creator-supplied titles containing harmfully euphemistic language regarding the forced removal and incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II were identified, but have been retained to convey important contextual information regarding time and place in which the documents and titles were created.
