We’re proud to announce that RIGHTFOOTED is one of seven films to receive a CAAM 2014 Documentary Fund Award. This prestigious grant is made by the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM). A supporter of independent filmmaking in Asian American communities for nearly 35 years, CAAM selected projects to receive production or acquisition funding totaling $147,000.
“These independent films represent the best of independent documentary storytelling by and about Asian Americans,” says CAAM Executive Director Stephen Gong. “We are excited to partner with them and showcase them to a broad national audience.” These film projects will be slated to air on PBS and other public media outlets.
With funding made possible from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, CAAM has also provided $65,000 to two projects from the 2014 Fall/Winter Documentary Fund as well as $15,000 to a special PBS American Experience project about Vietnamese refugees and Vietnam veterans.
