As a network of Asian American documentary filmmakers, we aspire to help other Asian American documentarians, partner with community organizations and educators, and foster collaboration among the filmmaker community.
This is a database of documentaries about Asian American topics, produced by Asian Americans. This resource is geared toward educators looking to screen a film in their classroom, student or community organizations looking to host a screening. Each film listing provides contact information and details on purchasing a license. Not all filmmakers on this database are A-Doc members, but many are. We promote A-Doc member films whose diverse work is focused outside of Asian American content in an additional database. Films below have relevant content to Asian American Studies and many have study guides. Filmmakers have presented these films at academic conferences, classroom visits, guest lectures, and campus screenings.
