Last week, Christopher Lee, the pioneering Asian American film producer and former head of production, gave a speech at the annual meeting of the Asian American Journalists Association, part of the Unity 99 Conference in Seattle. He is known for producing successful films such as the Oscar award-winning Philadelphia, The Fisher King, My Best Friend’s Wedding, Jerry Maguire, and the remake of Godzilla.

Equally as impressive is Lee’s involvement with the community. He is on the board of the Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies. A founding member of the Coalition of Asian Pacifics in Entertainment and a frequent public speaker on minority empowerment for schools and multicultural groups, Lee has demonstrated a sincere dedication to both the film industry and the greater community.
