ABOUT THE CENTER FOR ASIAN AMERICAN MEDIA The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) is a non profit organization dedicated to presenting stories that convey the richness and diversity of Asian American experiences to the broadest audience possible. We do this by funding, producing, distributing and exhibiting works in film, television and digital media. CAAMFEST: The nation’s largest showcase for new Asian American and Asian films, CAAMFest (formerly the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival) presents approximately 125 works in San Francisco and Oakland over the course of 11 days. Since 1982, the Festival has been an important launching point for Asian American independent filmmakers as well as a vital source for new Asian cinema. PUBLIC BROADCAST: CAAM presents innovative, engaging Asian American works on public television through our dynamic documentary programs. CAAM’s award-winning public TV programs are seen by millions of viewers a year across the United States, including 47 documentary shows in the last four years. MEDIA FUND: CAAM provides funding and support for provocative and timely Asian American film and media projects from independent producers. CAAM awards production and completion funds for projects intended for public television broadcast. Since 1990, more than $3 million has been granted to over 150 projects. EDUCATIONAL DISTRIBUTION: CAAM also curates the country’s largest collection of Asian American films and videos for educational distribution, with over 250 award-winning documentaries, personal stories, dramas and experimental works.
