Armed With a Camera Fellowship

As a filmmaker, I am a big believer in the importance of API film festivals. I believe they are the incubator of API talent and help get our stories on the big screen. One of the first people to believe in me and my writing were the good folks at Visual Communications, who put on the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival every year. Through their Armed with a Camera (AWC) fellowship, they helped me develop not only my voice but also my passion for filmmaking.

That’s why I’m excited to help spread the word that Visual Communications is NOW accepting applications to be part of the next class of Armed with a Camera fellows. This year, recipients of the AWC Fellowship will receive $1,000 stipend with an additional $1,000 equipment fund sponsored by Camadeus Film Technologies.
