Storify on Present/Future Summit: http://sfy.co/m7j

It's undeniable. The Asian American media landscape is changing rapidly. In the past five years, a tidal wave of viewers has emerged on YouTube, watching videos made by and starring Asian Americans. These days, the most recognizable Asian American faces may no longer come from Hollywood or network shows, yet the spotlight of "success" still remains on feature films and broadcast television. We have to ask ourselves: are we still looking in the right direction?

What better way to explore this question than with a community conversation! Think one-part TED talk, one-part Townhall and we have the PRESENT/FUTURE Summit. In a fast-paced, provocative dialogue engaging today's most interesting thinkers and creators, presentations by five featured speakers will be answered by five designated respondents and audience talk back. We'll cover specific topics - technology, new content production, television, socially conscious media, and exhibition -- with speakers ranging from popular YouTube stars to acclaimed academic voices. The aim is to gather the best minds in the business to generate ideas and debate. There is much we can learn from each other. And there is much we can support and challenge each other on.
