Abstract: Asian CineVision (ACV), founded by grassroots media activists in New York's Chinatown in 1976, is a non-profit media arts organization that develops, promotes and preserves media made by or about peoples of Asian descent. ACV initiated the weekly, cable-access Chinese Cable Television (CCTV), 1977-1983, which covered a broad range of community-interest issues such as local politics, education, language, housing, labor and healthcare. Beginning in 1978, ACV sponsored the Asian American International Film Festival (AIIFF). ACV also publishes the Asian American media arts journal CineVue. This unprocessed collection consists of three series: I, Administrative Files of Asian CineVision; II, Research Files; III, Video Recordings in various formats from Chinese Cable Television (CCTV), and the Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF).
