Join us for the premiere of the winning films of the 2020 HBO APA Visionaries Short Film Competition (LONELY BLUE NIGHT by Johnson Cheng, SI by Thomas Kim, and FINE CHINA by Tiffany So), hosted by Anna Akana with special guest appearances and a performance from 88Rising’s NIKI.
The APA Visionaries competition was established by HBO in 2016 to provide a platform for Asian Pacific American stories to further the dialogue about representation in Hollywood and the importance of diversity in entertainment. Judged by a panel of HBO executives, industry leaders, and fellow APA filmmakers, the competition seeks to identify cinematic storytellers who offer unique perspectives of the Asian Pacific American experience. The theme for the 2020 APA Visionaries Short Film Competition is “Breaking Barriers.”
