Elevate, Incubate & Demonstrate: Advancing Asian American Artists

Panel and Reception, Sunday, January 22 in Park City, Utah.



This week, the indie film world converges on cold, snowy Park City, Utah for the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. And yes, it may be a little hard to find amidst all the white, but over the years there has been a small but scrappy and significant APA presence at the festival. And it's growing. So if you're headed to Park City, check out this panel discussion/reception hosted by a coalition of APA media folks.

Elevate, Incubate & Demonstrate: Advancing Asian American Artists will feature a panel of creatives and industry leaders in conversation on the current and future state of Asian Americans in media. It's happening Sunday, January 22 at Bodega on Main. Here are some more details about the event:
