Who We Are
Headquartered in San Diego, ACMA was established in 2013 to empower and support filmmakers and change makers who create impact and positive change within the Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander communities in Southern California through media arts.
As part of its mission, ACMA offer various programs throughout the year including its award winning Asian Voices documentary series, Asian Voices Radio podcast, TAKE ONE vocational youth media training and internship program, E4Women and MediActivism webinars as well as APCC online business directory website for AANHPI businesses.
