Most of you know that we put together an exciting film festival each year. But did you know that we’re always funding, programming and producing films throughout the year?

CAAM is a part of the National Minority Consortia, which includes five separate and distinct organizations: CAAM, Vision Maker Media, Latino Public Broadcasting, National Black Programming Consortium and Pacific Islanders in Communications. These organizations work with independent filmmakers across the country to bring to public media content that reflects the diverse voices and visions of the United States.

Here’s a video that includes scenes from American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs, Across the Creek, Now en Español, 180 Days: Hartsville and Family Ingredients, which are all airing on PBS starting in June:

 

In Family Ingredients, Chef Ed Kenney introduces us to people and riveting stories linked together by a family recipe. Presented by Pacific Islanders in Communications. (See main image).
