The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) is now accepting film and media submissions for the 42nd anniversary of CAAMFest! The festival is currently scheduled for May 9 - 19, 2024. Please check back as dates may change.

CAAMFest (presented by the Center for Asian American Media) is one of the nation’s largest and enduring showcases for Asian and Asian American talent in film, food, music, and ideas. Since 1982, the annual festival has been an important launching point for Asian American independent filmmakers.

CAAMFest 2024 will be an in-person festival experience in the San Francisco Bay Area that includes a dynamic curation of film screenings, live performances, and culinary experiences that dive deep into illuminating the nuances of our vast and diverse diaspora.

“Our stories have the power to catalyze the public imagination, build socio-cultural movements, and influence political decisions in a way that shapes and defines our future and the world we want to live in,” says Thúy Trần, CAAMFest Festival & Exhibitions Director returning for their 3rd year at the helm.

In addition to film submissions, CAAMFest will be accepting proposals for digital and interactive media projects that can include virtual and augmented reality, multimedia performances, immersive art, and site-specific installations. We encourage filmmakers AND artists to apply. Please read below for our eligibility requirements.

With the ongoing pandemic, we will continue to monitor state and local public health guidance as we plan for 2024. Check back for more updates or follow our social media on Facebook, Twitter/X, or Instagram.

Filmmakers and artists can submit online using FilmFreeway. For questions or more information about the Call for Entries, please contact the Festival team at
