CAAM’s FORWARD SYMPOSIUM is a 2-session program examining Asian American storytelling and the impact CAAM has had on the field and community over the past 40 years. The symposium’s panels will feature recognized documentary filmmakers, mediamakers, experts, thought leaders, and Asian American Studies scholars. This is a moment for CAAM to gather key members of the Asian American mediamaking community and celebrate them, their contributions to American film and media arts, and the social impact of their work. This program is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
