CAAMFest 2021: Celebrating Asian American Stories
About: The Center For Asian American Media (CAAM) presents CAAMFest 2021: Celebrating Asian American Stories, from May 13, 2021 to May 23, 2021, both virtually online and at the FORT MASON FLIX drive-in theater at Fort Mason Center For Arts & Culture. The 10-day program features live virtual screenings, on-demand screenings, and drive-in experiences. The drive-in screenings take place on Thursday through Saturday, May 13, 2021 through May 15, 2021.
While some screenings are ticketed, CAAMFest also offers free events. Ticket options include $8 to $10 for individual virtual screenings, $12 to $15 for special screening events, $44 to $50 for the CAAMFest On Demand Pass, $44 to $50 per vehicle for single drive-in screenings, and $84 to $90 per vehicle for drive-in double features.
CAAMFest 2021 kicks off with opening night presentations of Try Harder! at the drive-in. This acclaimed film by local filmmaker Debbie Lum looks at the highly competitive atmosphere at San Francisco’s Lowell High School, where many students are Asian American. The heat is on for these students as they work hard at school while also experiencing the incredibly stressful process of applying to elite colleges and universities where only a few open spots exist for the flood of applications the campuses will receive. Try Harder! screens at the FORT MASON FLIX drive-in at 6:30 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. on Thursday, May 13, 2021.
CAAMFest 2021 Day 2 offers two more films in a special drive-in program, “Celebration Of Filipino American Stories” on Friday, May 14, 2021, at 6:30 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. The drive-in portion of CAAMFest 2021 wraps up on Saturday, May 15, 2021, with the “Hong Kong Cinema Showcase” at 6:30 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. Many more virtual programs continue through Sunday, May 23, 2021, with CAAMFest 2021’s eclectic schedule of online screenings.
Screenings: May 13, May 14, and May 15, 2021, 6:30 p.m. & 9:15 p.m.
