Dear DC APA Film Supporter!

What an exciting year this has been!

The past year has been nothing short of evolutionary. Working in the nation's capital while creating new and exciting opportunities for people to experience film, celebrate independent filmmaking, and enjoy new media has been so personally gratifying for all of us here at DC Asian Pacific American Film. We deeply thank you for your continued words of support and encouragement, and –most of all– the wonderful things we have been able to accomplish together, because of your support.

Take a look at a few of this year’s outstanding highlights, with my deepest thanks for your involvement:

  • The 17th Annual DC APA Film Festival May 19th-21st, 2017 which was a fantastic gathering of filmmakers from all over the world including Iran, India, and more
  • Over 100 submissions last year and we anticipate a new record of short film submissions for the 18th year - Save The Date: May 11-13, 2018
  • Premiere of our 1st Annual Script2Screen Contest winner's film - "Rock Bottom" by Ilyanna Espiritu
  • An amazing social media and YouTube campaign for diversity in film called #StarringAP
  • Partnership with Freer/Sackler Gallery for their Teen Youth Council program
  • Collaboration with other local film festivals, Asian Pacific American organizations and other non-profits
  • Specific programs for actors, screenwriters, filmmakers, and talent of all backgrounds
  • Emergence of a new Asian American Talent competition as a channel for other artistic pursuits called: TalentDream (Behind every Talent there is a bigger Dream!) coming in Fall 2018

Because I know you believe in our new mission (Raising APA Media and Talent to New Heights) and are proud to be a part of all we have accomplished together.

We would like to take one more chance to ask you to support  DC Asian Pacific American Film, their festival, their talent channels, the volunteers, the staff and especially, their programming this year end.

If there was ever a time to make a special gift to the DC APA Film, it is now. We are a fully recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)3 organization, and your donation is tax-deductible.  Our EIN is 522331189. 

Thank you for all that you have made possible for us this past year, we look forward to achieving even more–together–in 2018.

On behalf of all of us at DC APA Film, our best wishes for a Happy New Year!
