Where are the Asian Women in Film?
The 36th Asian American International Film Festival and Asian American Women Media Makers (AAWMM) are proud to co-host the panel Where are the Asian Women in Film?
Tuesday Jul 30 | 6:30pm
Museum of Chinese in America (215 Centre Street)
Donation of $10 at door is strongly recommended. All the donations will be used for covering the management of the panel as well as sustaining the programs of ACV, AAWMM, and MOCA.
Visibility matters. How did Asian female filmmakers get their start in film? What roles are they playing? What are the added challenges of being Asian and female in the film business? As AAIFF’13 boasts a significant lineup of works by both Asian American and Asian female filmmakers (one third of the features and one fourth of the shorts; check out the press release here for details), are we talking about visibility issues the same way as we talked about it in the past? What can we do to increase our visibility in front and behind the camera? What are the new channels in the era of international mobility and crowd-sourcing?
Speakers include Nadine TRUONG, director of SOME I USED TO KNOW at AAIFF’13; Di QUON, actor and producer; and Christine CHOY, veteran director and professor. S. Casper WONG, filmmaker and founder of AAWMM will be moderating.
AAWMM will launch its Monthly Networking Drinks following the panel at the Red Egg at 202 Centre Street from 8pm to 10pm. All Asian women in film and people who love them are welcomed!
