A3 Foundation announces partnership with Sundance Institute

I'm excited to relay this news about the A3 Foundation, a new venture to promote Asian Americans in entertainment. Founded by a group of early Facebook employee, their goal is to diversity and support Asian American voices and faces in American media through television, film and online media.

This week at special reception at the Sundance Film Festival, they announced a collaboration with the Sundance Institute to establish the A3 Sundance Institute Director/Screenwriting Fellowship, which will support a talented artist with an Asian American-themed project from among the Fellows selected by the prestigious Sundance Institute Feature Film Program Directing or Screenwriting Lab.

The A3 Foundation has already launched its first Fellows Program, collaborating with established online mediamakers Wong Fu Productions and YOMYOMF to pair fellows with funding and mentorship.
