The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) is pleased to announce a reimagined festival experience. From May 13-26, 2020, CAAMFest Online: Heritage at Home will be providing an online alternative in celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage month. With the theme of Heritage at Home, this event will provide the community and engagement that CAAMFest is known for, while maintaining social distance. CAAMFest Online: Heritage at Home features over 20 digital events, ranging from online film screenings to interactive panels, watch parties and house parties featuring live performances, all free of charge.
The Asian American community has been uniquely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the response from the community has been urgent and inspiring — whether it is working on the front lines, raising awareness about anti-Asian discrimination, or bringing creative solutions to the breakdown in social services across the country. It is more important than ever that CAAM takes this moment to listen to and amplify the diverse voices and experiences of the Asian American community. CAAM is proud to continue its 40-year tradition of cultivating community through storytelling, particularly during these uncertain times.
