Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival

C3 Conference

2017 FUTURE FORWARD:

THE 7TH EDITION OF THE CONFERENCE FOR CREATIVE CONTENT (C3) AT THE LOS ANGELES ASIAN PACIFIC FILM FESTIVAL!

THE ONLY EVENT OF ITS KIND, this year’s theme for the Conference for Creative Content (C3) is FUTURE FORWARD. C3 brings together the foremost media professionals in film, television, cable, digital and transmedia to create a dialogue on the ever-changing media industry, share best practices, network, celebrate and build a collective vision for our community.

We’re honored to bring the seventh edition of C3 to the opening weekend of the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, Saturday, April 29th and Sunday April 30th at the Japanese American National Museum (JANM), located in the historic Little Tokyo district of Downtown Los Angeles. Additionally, there will be a free C3 panel on Monday, May 1 at the Korean Cultural Center (KCC) in Mid-Wilshire. The C3 Reception will follow at the conclusion of the panels on Saturday, April 29 in the lobby and the garden of JANM.

Building off of our previous C3 Conferences, the way we view, consume and create content continues to shift and evolve rapidly – it’s our goal to dive in and hear from the forerunners of this change, especially from APIs leading the way.
