SXSW 2018

An Asian American lens on #OscarsSoWhite

The #OscarsSoWhite conversation that began in 2016 scrutinized Hollywood’s lack of diversity, but the spotlight has focused on representation in front of the camera and less on the creative talents behind it.

A panel of top independent Asian American film professionals will discuss the shifting landscape of Asian American cinema, unique challenges faced by underrepresented filmmakers from idea to distribution, and the winding path towards true inclusion in the film industry.

The title of this session has now been changed to “An Asian American Lens on Diversity in Film”
