Save the Date for the 40th anniversary of CAAMFest: May 12-22, 2022

We are calling our 2022 festival CAAMFest40, as we are marking four decades of bringing together Asian American creatives and community for dialogue, engagement, and celebration. “CAAMFest40 is the latest chapter in a legacy of raising our voices and telling our stories that began in Berkeley forty years ago, when a group of Asian American filmmakers gathered together to present and celebrate our stories, which are a part of the American narrative,” says Stephen Gong, Executive Director of CAAM.

During the past two years, CAAM has pivoted to virtual programming as a result of the unprecedented global pandemic, and we will continue to monitor state and local public health guidance as we plan for 2022. Whatever form the festival may take, we are excited to present a robust slate of film screenings, conversations, performances, and workshops to honor our legacy and look forward to our future. Check back for more updates or follow our social media on FacebookTwitterInstagram, and YouTube.

We are also accepting submissions for CAAMFest40. If you are a film or media maker and want to submit your work for consideration, click here for more information on our Call for Entries.

It is in times of profound social, political, and cultural change, when storytelling can help heal, connect, and strengthen our communities. For 41 years, we have supported Asian American storytellers and advanced a more authentic understanding of the American experience.

With your continued support, we will keep doing what we do best: uplifting the stories and experiences of Asians and Asian Americans.
