The CAAM Fellowship Program seeks to develop the talents and skills of a range of media professions including filmmakers, actors, programmers, and executives.
Participating fellows will have access to the leading Asian American talent in film, television and digital media. Each fellowship will be individually tailored to best fit the needs of the fellows and advisers. Fellowships will range from fully integrated collaborations to regular feedback on current projects to an ongoing dialogue about professional development.
Furthermore, fellows will have the opportunity to connect with the larger community of Asian American media professionals through a Producers Workshop at CAAM’s festival and a CAAM Fellowship Program Retreat hosted by CAAM for all participating mentors and fellows.

Born in New York and raised in southern California, Grace Rowe knew from the age of seven that she wanted to be an actor. After graduating from the Orange County High School for Performing Arts, she studied theater and film at UCLA where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Theater Arts. Frustrated by the limited amount of strong parts for Asian American actresses, Grace decided to write and perform a one woman show entitled, THE GRID LIFE, about seven vastly different Asian American women struggling with identity issues.
Grace adapted the play into a feature-length screenplay, entitled AMERICAN SEOUL. In addition to being one of the screenplays chosen for the 2002 IFP/West (now known as FIND or Film INDependent) Screenwriter’s and Producer’s Lab, American Seoul won the Best Screenplay Award for the 2002 Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF) in New York City.
In 2009, Grace released her first feature film I AM THAT GIRL, financed with help from friends and family through assistance of the San Diego Asian Film Foundation. She will screen her short film version of American Seoul and talk on “Navigating Through Hollywood As An Asian American Filmmaker.” All are welcome to our closing speaker of the quarter!
