The 7th Annual Art of Brooklyn Film Festival‘s Guest Festival Director Dave Chan (Sure-Fire, Ambush) will lead a lively industry panel discussion on the mis/under-representation of Asian-Americans in a Hollywood that can’t seem to stop white washing Asian stories. This panel titled “Between Yellow Face and White Washing: Asian-Americans in (and on) Film” will address creative solutions on how to correct this from a grassroots level on up.
The panel takes place Saturday, June 10th at 2pm in Brooklyn, NY at St. Francis College. If you are in the NYC area this weekend, please stop by and attend a discussion on this very timely and important topic.
