“I thought SDP would be a great opportunity to participate in the festival’s programs and meet people in the field of Asian American media. My actual experience exceeded my expectations because we had so many opportunities to get to know interesting people and be inspired by all the great work that is happening. This inspires me to continue to pursue my path to be a film producer and to continue with film studies.” —Yen Le, SDP 2011
