This is where tomorrow begins – storytellers of every genre, modality, place of their career come to finesse ideas, exchange craft wisdom with industry vantages, and be in community with other emergent and experienced media makers. 

Filmmaker Summit

This year’s Filmmaker Summit at CAAMFest will feature two days of industry and community conversations to lean into the power of storytelling. An intergenerational cross section of filmmakers, mentors, fellows and industry leaders to honor the beauty and impact of individual stories. The Summit will create spaces to uplift storytelling practices across the many communities we are part of, and to support one another in a shifting media and cultural landscape.  CAAM’s Filmmaker Summit is made possible with support from: Comcast NBCUniversal, Asian American Documentary Network (A-Doc), Jessie Cheng Charitable Foundation, Film SF | San Francisco Film Commission, Firelight Media, ITVS, and American Documentary + WORLD.
