Who We Are
Based in San Diego, ACMA reaches throughout the entire Southern California region to support its filmmakers and storytellers, as well as highlight the people, organizations, and events that create positive change within the Asian American and Pacific Islander community.
We offer various programs including media training, webinars, a podcast series, a cultural television series, community webinars, and an online business directory for AAPI business owners. Through these programs, we aim to bring a voice of unity for everyone in our community.
Did you know you can support ACMA at no extra cost?
By shopping at Ralph’s or adding AmazonSmile to your accounts, your donations will automatically be applied as you regularly shop. No extra effort or funds needed!
If you need an easy way to alleviate yourself of that extra car, consider donating through CARS!
There are a variety of programs you can sponsor to contribute to our mission in amplifying AAPI voices and stories.
Another Round of Take One
This year’s Take One will take place this summer!
Take One is a 12-week Media and Vocational Internship Program that aims to uplift AANHPI youth interested in the film and television industry. The curriculum aims to provide foundational skills in media through hands-on training and opportunities to explore their creativity through writing workshops.
If you’re a passionate, goal driven individual who not only shares an intense interest in learning filmmaking but also how to apply the power of film arts in building better diversity and equity for our AANHPI community through authentic stories and narratives, then start your rewarding journey at Take One!
Applications are being accepted until May 29th!
