The Center for Asian American Media (CAAM) is pleased to announce that the 34th Annual CAAMFest will take place March 10-20, 2016 in the San Francisco Bay Area. Formerly the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival (SFIAAFF), CAAMFest is an 11-day celebration of film, music, food and digital media from the world’s most innovative Asian and Asian American artists.
Building on 30 successful years as SFIAAFF and entering its fourth year as the rebranded CAAMFest, the Festival welcomes fresh scenery with new venues in the Mission district. Joining the Castro Theatre, New People Cinema and New Parkway Theater (Oakland), CAAM adds the venerable 106 year-old Roxie Theater and the newly-minted Alamo Drafthouse to its diverse slate of venues and neighborhoods.
“Cultural preservation and innovation are core to CAAM’s mission. With both the Roxie and Alamo, we continue to elevate and explore this intersection of old and new,” says Stephen Gong, CAAM’s Executive Director. “We’re excited to expand CAAMFest to a new neighborhood in the culturally-rich Mission district and to continue to offer dynamic programs in film, music and food for the Bay Area community.”
Highlighted films and special guests will be announced in late January, and a full press conference with the complete line-up of programs, guests and venues will be held on February 11, 2016.
