“When I was just starting out as a filmmaker, it was difficult at first finding both support and a community for young Asian American filmmakers like myself. After a year or two of searching, I was fortunate to attend the San Francisco Asian American International Film Festival (now CAAMFest) which allowed me to meet other filmmakers with similar experiences and finally belong to a real filmmaking community. In the years since then, CAAM has continued to support me by helping to fund my current projects and presenting my completed projects at CAAMFest. There are few organizations advocating for Asian American filmmakers and artists like CAAM so I encourage you to show your support by making a year-end donation.” –Bao Nguyen
