Why Filmmaker Grace Lee Supports CAAM


“There is no other organization as committed to funding, broadcasting, exhibiting and supporting Asian American filmmakers as CAAM. I have experienced this support firsthand, as a festival goer, a recipient of the Media Fund, and most recently as a collaborator on my latest film Off the Menu: Asian America. CAAM filmmakers are out there changing the industry, one film at a time — as producers, writers, directors, actors, critics and more, allowing audiences to engage with Asian American stories that reflect our rich diversity. Please join me in giving back to an organization that has given so much to our community.” – Award-winning filmmaker Grace Lee (American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs, Off the Menu: Asian America)

Help us support and bring to light the compelling and authentic stories and voices of Asian American filmmakers and storytellers like Grace Lee by donating to CAAM’s crowdfunding campaign Connecting Community One Story at a Time at www.CAAMedia.org/OneStory by December 31st.

The first 10 people who donate $250 or more to the campaign will receive a signed copy of Grace Lee’s documentary American Revolutionary: The Evolution of Grace Lee Boggs (CAAMFest 2014 Centerpiece Presentation).
