When we last gathered to celebrate Asian American, Pacific Islander, and Asian international cinema artists at Park City 2021, the organizers of the Asian Pacific Filmmakers Experience waded cautiously but confidently into uncharted waters due to the continuing COVID-19 global pandemic. Yet through the pivot of the Asian Pacific Filmmakers Experience in Park City into a virtual celebration platform, we have succeeded in celebrating our communities’ artists whose debuts at the (virtual) Sundance and Slamdance Film Festivals affirmed once again the power of our cinematic visions and voices. Despite the triple whammy of a global pandemic, a continuing national reckoning on racial inequity, and the never-ending fallout from the 2020 presidential election, we have joined with our filmmakers and partners to effectively imagine a safer, saner, and yes, a more egalitarian movie-watching and filmmaker celebratory experience.

With that, the organizers of the Experience bring you our eighteenth edition, the 2022 Asian Pacific Filmmakers Experience in (Virtual) Park City. Through a series of online chats, discussions, and partnerships among a broad range of constituents throughout the Asian American and Pacific Islander filmmaking community, we continue to innovate, integrate, and cultivate both emerging and established storytellers, and adapt technology to fulfill our mission to celebrate and foreground our communities’ cinematic artists.
