An “illustrated” seminar on the Center for Asian American Media’s (CAAM) changing strategies in its mission to bring authentic Asian American stories to light. Founded 30 years ago in response to a lack of presence in mainstream media, CAAM’s programs (which include funding for public television documentaries, educational film distribution, and the San Francisco International Film Festival) are being re-tooled for the transformational shifts in media and communications technology. Participants get a new perspective on current issues in public broadcasting’s transformation to public media, and independent filmmaking in the age of Facebook and YouTube.
Stephen Gong is the executive director of the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM), a leading media and cultural non-profit organization located in San Francisco. Stephen joined CAAM in 2006 after many years as the General Manager of the Pacific Film Archive, and Deputy Director of the Berkeley Art Museum at the University of California, Berkeley. Prior to that he was a program officer in the Media Arts program at the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Associate Director of the National Center for Film and Video Preservation at the American Film Institute.
