Meet Your Fellow Creatives!
Breaking into the industry feels impossible unless you’ve won a fellowship or gained thousands of followers. From private screenings, red carpets, and hidden networking events, there are so many aspects of the entertainment industry that feel gate kept from the next generation of storytellers.
We aim to be different.
At our events, everyone is allowed to be apart of our community. You don’t have to win a contest, be a celebrity, or have made your first feature film. As long as you’re interested in the Asian Pacific entertainment industry, and abide by our general code of conduct, you’re welcome into our spaces.
MEETUPS & NETWORKING
We’ve created a series of meetups for everyone to enjoy and meet other Asian Pacifics in the industry. Our goal is for a monthly, or semi-monthly, meetup of AANHPI creatives and executives. Yes, there’s networking involved, but we focus on relationship and community building through fun and engaging events. Our events are open to the public and we’ll accommodate as many people as our venue safely allows.
As filmmakers and storytellers ourselves, we understand that a healthy community of creatives means supporting one another, no matter the status of their work. Yes, it’s great to have won something, but it feels awful to continuously get rejected year after year without support on how to improve your work or not get invited to events to meet others in the industry. That’s not community, that’s elitism.
We want to create a safe space for everyone to have a good time, make connections, and meet new people outside our usual circles.
Our Meetups Are...
