Call for 2013 Student Delegates! Apply by February 15

new deadline: February 15!


CAAMFEST, formerly the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival (SFIAAFF), is proud to continue its annual Student Delegate Program (SDP). The program (open to college or graduate level students) brings together a small but diverse student population to spend several days together during the Festival to view, discuss, and reflect on films and media. Hosted by Festival staff, students interact closely with industry guests and join in thoughtful conversations with selected film-makers, artists, and other Festival guests.

The Program

If selected, student delegates are REQUIRED to:

  • Follow the schedule (in app) planned for them during CAAMFEST 2013 (formerly SFIAAFF)
  • Participate in online blogging and commenting on CAAMFEST’s website
  • Participate in group discussions about CAAMFEST films and events

Delegates will attend the planned film screenings and events as a group, led by a CAAMFEST staff. Students are welcome to attend additional Festival events and parties, but must be able to commit to the planned schedule. The program is open to both undergraduate and graduate college students. We encourage both film and non-film majors to apply. The most important qualities we seek in a candidate are a love for film and media, and a desire to share this passion, the ability to interact with other students and festival guests, and a willingness to follow a rigorous program of screenings and discussions. With only 6 spots available, each student’s full commitment to the program is mandatory.

Please keep in mind the program entails a challenging schedule with long hours—participants are responsible for their own ground transportation and lodging and should plan accordingly.

Results will be sent via email by Feb. 28, 2013. Please do not call before Feb. 28 for results.
