Just around the corner from March 9-19 is one of our favorite yearly festivals CAAMFEST! Presented by the Center for Asian American Media, CAAMFEST is the nation’s premier event showcasing and celebrating bold and vibrant Asian American stories and storytellers.
TRAKTIVIST is proud to support this year’s 35th annual CAAMFEST 2017 as a media sponsor, co-presenter of two films, & a performing artist!
Featuring emerging and cutting-edge musicians, Directions in Sound exposes Bay Area audiences to innovative artists from the underground music scene. Directions in Sound continues this year by joining forces with Kollboration SF to bring Asian American hip-hop and rock beats from Los Angeles all the way to the Mariana Achipelago. Hosted by Wild 94.9’s Julian Lee.
TRAKTIVIST will be dj’ing a special set of music made by Asian Americans!
TRAKTIVIST has the privilege to be a Co-Presenter for the highly anticipated screenings of the following two films!
