Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment, the leading film and television industry organization for Asian and Pacific Islanders, on Thursday announced the return of its Radiance Gala, celebrating the achievements of Asian and Pacific Islander Women and Non-Binary artists, artisans and leaders in entertainment. The second edition of the event will take place at The Ebell in Los Angeles on Monday, March 11th, amidst Women’s History Month.
Actor and comedian Jenny Yang (The Brothers Sun) will serve as host of the ceremony. Set to appear for a special musical performance is MILCK, the artist, writer, producer and social change artist whose song “Quiet” became the unofficial anthem of the 2017 Women’s March in Washington, D.C., and who is the subject of a new documentary short, directed and produced by Eurie Chung and Grace Lee.

Additional honorees and programming highlights for Radiance will be announced at a later date. Proceeds from the evening will go towards sustaining CAPE’s pathway programs such as the CAPE New Writers Fellowship, CAPE Leaders Fellowship, Julia S. Gouw Short Film Challenge for API Women and Non-Binary Filmmakers, CAPE Animation Directors Accelerator, CAPE Emerging Executives Committee, and other programs in incubation. All of the aforementioned are intended to help break down the barriers that have held API creatives in the industry back for too long.
