COVID-19 Membership Updates

Visit our COVID-19 Membership and Donation Updates page for updates about membership benefits and acknowledgment letters and donation acknowledgment letters in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Membership Cards and Acknowledgment Letters
Our entire staff, including our Development team members, are working remotely until California’s statewide shelter-in-place order is lifted. While this order is in place, membership and donation acknowledgment letters will be e-mailed on a weekly basis. Membership cards will be mailed once the shelter-in-place order has been lifted. If you recently made a donation, joined as a member, or renewed your membership and have questions about when you will receive your letter and packet, please email CAAM’s Development Associate Jonathan Hsieh at

CAAMFest Membership Benefits
Due to the postponement of CAAMFest to fall 2020, we will extend current memberships and festival-related ticket benefits. We will let you know once we have confirmed the date(s) of our rescheduled CAAMFest programs and the date your membership will be extended to. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email our Membership Manager Jennifer Chu at


“I wouldn’t have a filmmaking career without CAAM. They introduced me to a local PBS station that broadcasted my first historical documentary, and they’ve been there reading through proposals and treatments of project ideas (both good and bad) giving me feedback and support. My relationship with the people from CAAM are for life. And through their film festival, they’ve shown me the world of the Asian and Asian American filmmaking. They have made me see that being an Asian American and, in particular, a Filipino American, is an asset as a storyteller, a perspective on the world that has not been mined and that people are hungry to take .” – Marissa Aroy, Filmmaker
