DC APA Film congratulates our sponsor Kollaboration DC for an incredible show! The inaugural Kollaboration DC Talent Competition Showcase drew more than 1,300 attendees to the George Washington University Lisner Auditorium on Saturday, September 25th. Competitors and guest performers gave the audience a show to remember as the young beatboxer Chip Han, talented singer/songwriter Amanda Lee, and the lyrically inspiring Trus Real took home 1st, 2nd and 3rd place (in that order).
Kollaboration is an Asian and Pacific Islander (API) organization and Movement that was founded in 2000 by Executive Director Paul “PK” Kim. Under the guidance of Executive Producer Roy Choi, Kollaboration became officially incorporated as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in January of 2006 and became an Asian and Pacific Islander organization (previously it focused only on the Korean American community).
Kollaboration is an annual event and movement produced by young Asian and Pacific Islander professionals and students, volunteering their time and skills to celebrate the vast talents of their community and hopefully bring them into the mainstream.
