Support for Artists to Improve AAPI Representation in Entertainment
October 13, 2023 | Grantee News | Journalism & Media

“No one artist voice can be representative of an entire community,” says Kristine Gerolaga, a filmmaker and actor who was awarded a Collab Scholarship from The Asian American Foundation (TAAF) and Sundance Institute. TAAF and Sundance announced a second cohort of artists for their fellowship and Collab scholarship to support Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) working in film and television and better represent the range of AAPI stories. Six artists received the fellowship with creative and tactical support along with a $20,000 unrestricted grant. And the scholarship offers six AAPI creatives a self-paced course on Sundance Collab, feedback on their current project, and engagement opportunities with Sundance staff and the creative community. The program helps support artists as they shape the next generation of AAPI representation in film and media.
