Your Artistic Background/Mission
Grassroots media activists in New York's Chinatown founded ACV in 1976. At a time of exceptional energy and assertion on the part of diverse cultural groups, claiming their voices and places in a landscape that had been dominated by European Americans, ACV's founders saw the need to bring greater social and cultural awareness of Asian American experience and history to both Asian American communities and to the public at large. Moving-image media had become the nation's common language, its most pervasive source of images and ideas, and Asian Americans barely registered on its screens. ACV's founders wanted to address problems faced by Asian Americans in both representation in the media and access to the means of media production and distribution. Technologies and outlets for independent media were multiplying, creating new possibilities for Asian Americans both behind and in front of the cameras, in production and distribution, in scholarship and practice, in every style and platform of media arts.

ACV organized the first Asian American film festival in the U.S. in 1978. The annual National Festival Tour provided the seed-stock for most of the Asian American festivals that have sprung up in subsequent years around the country. ACV has also accomplished much to open exchange and introduce audiences to works from Asia and the Asian diaspora. At the peak of its funding and program activity, year-round activities included the annual Asian American International Film Festival and the national tour of Festival works, other exhibitions in film and video, media-production services for independent artists and producers in New York, publications including the quarterly journal CineVue, a print and media archive, and a range of training workshops.
