The Asian Canadian and Asian Migration Studies (ACAM) program is pleased to present the 7th annual ACAM 350 Community Screening! This year we will host an virtual film premiere to showcase original student projects produced by this year’s cohort of ACAM 350: Asian Canadian Community-Based Media, taught by award-winning filmmaker and instructor Alejandro Yoshizawa at UBC.

The films will premiere on YouTube on Wed. May 12th at 7pm (PDT), and will be available for viewing until the end of Wed. May 19th. Stay tuned for updates on the YouTube link and details about the films!

Event free and open to all. Please RSVP to receive YouTube link ahead of time.

While this event will be virtual, UBC and the ACAM program are located on the unceded, ancestral, and occupied territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people. We recognize that learning the names of these unceded territories is one out of many commitments required to honour the stewards of this land. Place continues to be important even as many events become virtual due to COVID-19 pandemic, and we encourage participants to learn whose lands and territories they are joining from. For those joining from the place sometimes called “Canada,” you can begin to learn more whose land you are on at https://native-land.ca.
