The list is undoubtedly shorter that those from Park City, UT and Austin, TX, but what the list of honored Asian American and Pacific Islander artists at the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival lacks in volume, it more than makes up in sheer quality. Veteran filmmakers as Ravi Kapoor, Derek Nguyen, and Christine Turner are accompanied this time out by “new breed” cinema artists as So Yun Um and Violet Feng. And let’s not forget about those directors of video game projects! All in all, a succinct yet stellar offering of new works by artists of AAPI descent. We encourage you all to welcome their works, and be sure to check them all out throughout Tribeca 2022.

As always, all honorees are DIRECTORS except where indicated. And please feel free to share this list with all your real and online friends and associates.
