Year after year, DC APA Film is fortunate to partner with many individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations. But undoubtedly the most important “partnership” we have is with the Lin family. For those who are just discovering our organization, George C. Lin was our first Executive Director and founder. In 2008, he passed away at the very young age of 37. We remember George for his passion and love for the arts as well as his dedication to our organization and to San Diego Asian Film Foundation.
Last year DC APA Film and the Lin family was proud to present the first-ever George C. Lin Emerging Filmmaker Award to Tze Chun, the very talented writer and director of Children of Invention. This year we are both thrilled that the award will be presented again this year on October 13 at 7 p.m.
The Lin family continues to amaze us and touch us by their kindness and generosity. George’s brother Frank informed us that the family is donating $2500 to DC APA Film. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised because this is the type of thing that George always did – he would do whatever he can to help. We continue to see George’s kindness through the Lin family.
We are very touched by this donation. From the bottom of our heart, we want to say THANK YOU to the Lin family. We are so fortunate to be your friends.

The George C. Lin Memorial Fund was established by the Lin family in October of 2008 in memory of George C. Lin (1971-2008). The fund provides charitable grants to students, educators and professionals in the non-profit media and arts industries. Additionally, the fund provides grants and other forms of support promoting Pheochromocytoma cancer research, education and awareness.
