ABOUT THE EVENT

lorem ipsum dolor sit amet

For the last 18 years, the Unforgettable Gala has bridged memories of the past with powerful moments from the present — in celebration of the future. The annual awards show is the only event of its kind, recognizing the Asian American icons and change-makers who represent our community and tell our stories. Through their work and long-fought battles, we have finally found representation and a seat at the table. This year, we have seen more Asian American faces on screen and more Asian American projects green-lit than in the decades past. It is more important now than ever that we take this moment to award these individuals who are paving the way, because of course – we still have a long way to go.

With a timeless approach and ambition for change, Character Media dares to dream a bigger dream for Asian American culture. We celebrate and honor the essentials of our collective identity: creativity, diversity, and growth at the 18th Annual Unforgettable Gala.

More details to follow. In the meantime, take a look at highlights from our 2018 Unforgettable Gala and this year’s sponsorship packages below.
