Silicon Valley Asian Pacific FilmFest

June 26, 2019
"Telling Our Stories Through Independent Film" 
A Panel Discussion

Japanese American Museum of San Jose JAMsj

 

Wednesday evening June 26, 2019 7pm - 9pm
 Japanese American Museum of San Jose JAMsj


Filmmaking can be as simple as recording an event, such as taking a cell phone video. However, the art of Visual Storytelling delves much deeper. Visual Storytelling captures not only an event,  be it fictional or historical, but also the nuances surrounding the event that provide richness and depth, making the story that much more compelling. Such Asian stories could be a box office success like Crazy Rich Asians, a recently previewed biography of Mayor Ed Lee, or a Filipino folktale about mythical creatures. Hear from independent filmmakers who are telling Asian stories through film - why they do it and the challenges they face.
