This event takes place in the Lecture Hall (Level 1). No advance registration needed. 

Celebrate the 36th anniversary of CAAMFest, one the Bay Area’s premier film festivals. Known for outstanding entries that spotlight Asian-American stories, filmmakers, and film producers, screenings on both sides of the Bay promise to be as dynamic and powerful as ever. Past CAAMFest screenings at OMCA have included When the Bough Breaks (2013), Awesome Asian Bad Guys (2014), Changing Season (2015), Mele Murals (2016), and Blasian Narratives (2017).
