Sponsored by East West Bank and Loeb & Loeb, the half-day event is being hosted by the Asia Society Southern California’s Entertainment & Media/Asia Initiative.

Last year’s event drew more than 550 industry professionals according to the organisers, who expect a similar turnout with a panellist roster that includes Lava Bear founder David Linde, Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh and Galloping Horse general manager Ivy Zhong.

The two panels are Finance And Business update and Bridging The Creative Gap.

The summit is co-organised by Chinese American Film Festival, Coalition Of Asian Pacifics In Entertainment (CAPE) and Producers Guild Of America and will take place at Landmark Theatres.
