CAAMFest is the nation’s largest showcase for new Asian and Asian American films, presenting approximately 130 works in San Francisco, Berkeley and Oakland. Since 1982, the annual festival has been an important launching point for Asian American independent filmmakers as well as a vital source for new Asian cinema.
Competition categories include the Comcast Narrative Competition, the Documentary Competition, the Emerging Filmmaker Award, the Audience Award for Best Narrative, the Audience Award for Best Documentary and the Loni Ding Award in Social Issue Documentary Award. See past award winners.
CAAMFest aspires to incite dialogue and community engagement, motivated by “the innovative ways Asian Americans are contributing to and shaping American Identity and Culture,” says Stephen Gong, Executive Director of CAAM. In doing so, CAAMFest also showcases music, food, and interactive workshops. The 2014 festival drew an attendance of over 26,000, including more than 250 filmmakers and industry guests from around the world.
