CAAMFest San Jose is back! Celebrating its fourteenth year, CAAMFest San Jose presents films reflecting the impact and influence of Asian Americans in Silicon Valley and their continuous innovation in technology, arts and culture, media and community. Re-envisioned to be more community-driven and accessible, this year’s festival features five days of free public screenings, taking place October 6-14, 2016.

CAAMFest San Jose is CAAM’s fall showcase that brings the innovative spirit and forward thinking programming of CAAM’s annual CAAMFest in March to the South Bay. Formerly the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival (SFIAAFF), CAAMFest is a celebration of film, music, food and digital media from the world’s most innovative Asian and Asian American artists.
