Like last year, and the year before that, we proudly sponsored the annual Center for Asian American Media Festival (CAAMFest). This year, nearly 27,000 Asians, Asian-Americans and others traveled from around the globe to attend the 11-day celebrations. CAAMFest 2016 opened with the premiere of Pamela Tom’s TYRUS at the majestic Castro Theater on March 10th. Afterwards, the Opening Night Gala saw 900 guests, filmmakers and city officials hobnobbing at the legendary Asian Art Museum, itself celebrating 50 years of spotlighting Asia’s diverse cultures.

The Opening Night Gala was a feast for the senses, filled with electrifying music, savory Bay Area culinary delights and delectable Rémy Martin cocktails. An expert Rémy Martin mixologist was on site crafting cocktail specials for all in attendance while Rémy Martin models and ambassadors evangelized the brand. We welcomed long-time Rémy enthusiasts and made new fans, as seen on Instagram, which lit up that night with CAAMFest and Rémy selfies.

Overall, it was a superb night for cognac connoisseurs, art aficionados and film fanatics.
