From 2015 - 2017, I served as the annual curator and host of  Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival's Youth Media Program: From Vision to Reel , where I aim to select films that highlight underrepresented stories captured by Asian American and Pacific Islander youth and recruited community organizations to act as co-sponsors.

If Hollywood doesn't tell our stories, then who will?

We are the ones we have been waiting for.

"The purpose of these events is to create an opportunity for emerging and accomplished artists of Southeast Asian (Cambodian, Thai, Lao, Hmong, Vietnamese, etc) descent to share their work in a safe and supportive environment, and to expand people’s perception of 'Asian America' that goes beyond East Asian narratives. We aim to inspire audience members to own their story and share it through creative outlets as a way to educate others of our unique and intersecting identities." - June Kaewsith

“The true artist, however, is a truth teller who has the ability see reality untainted by cultural filters. Artists can shake us out of the cultural trance that leads us to consume harmful products, play the mark in Wall Street con games, and support corrupt politicians. Talented artists can help us see beauty, meaning, and possibility where it may otherwise escape our attention. They can take us on an imaginary journey to a future no one has yet visited to experience possibilities we may not have imagined. Our movement needs the contribution of millions of artists devoted to liberating human consciousness.”
