This program booklet was created for a film screening in partnership with the National Cambodian Heritage Museum at the Chicago Cultural Center. The City of Chicago and the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) included this program in their free film, music, and art programming lineup this fall and winter in Chicago.
I offered my services to the National Cambodian Heritage Museum to create print products, including a program booklet and a bookmark for their upcoming film screening event. The final product was intended to be given to attendees so that they could learn more about the featured films, key speakers, and ongoing projects at the museum.
