The Celebration of Asian Pacific Cinema & Television showcased both emerging and established talent. The inaugural event could not come at a better time, following an abundance of stellar work both in front of and behind the camera in recent projects including Everything Everywhere All at Once, Decision to Leave, Ms. Marvel, Turning Red, Squid Game, Pachinko, The Cleaning Lady, Fire Island, and many more. A portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to CAPE (Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment) to assist with funding a Film Production Grant for one rising filmmaker.
