Event Details

     

The Asian American Journalists Association and the Center for Asian American Media are partnering up to highlight projects by talented AAPI storytellers at AAJA’s 25th Annual convention in San Francisco. AAJA members and convention attendees were encouraged to submit their latest narrative, documentary and/or film projects to present at the Landmark Embarcadero Theater (two blocks away from the convention hotel Hyatt Regency San Francisco) on Wednesday, August 12, 2015 from 8:30 - 10:30 pm.  

A selection committee has selected three films, and each person or team will have 10 minutes to talk and show a short clip of their work. This event is free for all #AAJA15 convention attendees and current CAAM sustaining members

The winning participants are: 
 

  • Angela Sun, Director, Plastic Paradise
  • Phil Yu, Executive Producer, Awesome Asian Bad Guys
  • Sonia Narang, Director, Resilience (video series)
     

Visit CAAM's blog for more information about Angela Sun, Phil Yu, Sonia Narang and their projects. Thank you to everyone who submitted their projects for consideration. 

Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist Lloyd LaCuesta will emcee and moderate the event. LaCuesta, who retired in 2012 after working at KTVU Channel 2 for 35 years, is a CAAM Board Member. LaCuesta was the first elected National President of the Asian American Journalists Association and first National President of Unity '94. 

Feature AAJA member presentations will be followed by a special screening and Q&A with award-winning documentary filmmaker Grace Lee's newest film, Off the Menu: Asian America, about Asian Americans and food. The project is a co-production of CAAM and KQED with funding from CPB, and will air on PBS in December 2015. 

Space in the theater is limited so we encourage you to register early. Unfortunately, due to the limited space, we cannot guarantee that spots will be available on August 12th. However, if there are still seats available, members will be seated first-come, first-serve.

8-8:30pm – Guest registration and reception with appetizers and drinks at the Landmark Embarcadero Theater
8:30-9:00pm – Three AAJA member projects
9:00-10:00pm – Off the Menu: Asian America film screening
