The College of Arts & Media (CAM) joins the Colorado Dragon Boat Film Festival (CDBFF) to showcase Asian and Asian American film at Denver’s Sie Center, opening March 3 and running through March 5, 2022. This is the Rocky Mountain region’s only Asian and Asian American film festival. Presented in partnership with Colorado Dragon Boat and CAM, the 2022 festival will highlight the power of filmmaking within Asian communities.
CAM is proud to sponsor the Emerging Artist Showcase to celebrate short films made by emerging filmmakers from Colorado and the College of Arts & Media (CAM). The works of CAM students, alumni and faculty filmmakers, composers, musicians will be screened, followed by a q&a with the filmmakers.
This year the CDBFF theme is “celebrating our resilience,” which is underscored throughout the festival’s film selection. Highlights from the Emerging Artist Showcase featuring the talent of CAM filmmakers, composers, and musicians include:
