Asian Americans have been involved with the film industry in the United States for decades, but it has been very limited. There are many Americans of Asian descent who are now actors, actresses, movie producers, directors, and writers.

Several Asian American groups and film personnel have participated in the Sundance Film Festival more heavily for the past several years.

Ally Maki is an Asian American actress who was at the Sundance Film Festival 2023.

The Sundance Film Festival just concluded for 2023 in Park City, Utah. The Sundance Film Festival began in August 1978 as the Utah/US Film Festival to attract more filmmakers to Utah. It was founded by Sterling Van Wagenen, who was head of Robert Redford’s company Wildwood, and John Earle of the Utah Film Commission. Robert Redford has been heavily involved over the years.

Ally Maki Matsumura was born on December 29, 1986, in Kirkland, Washington. She is an actress and model of Japanese heritage who uses her first and middle names professionally.

She was scouted by a talent agent in Seattle at the age of fourteen. After she had moved to California, she was recruited by Columbia Records to form the girl band. The Valli Girls.

Ally has appeared in television and film, which included comedy and drama.

She is a fourth generation Japanese American. Her grandmother, Miyo, was held in an American concentration camp at Heart Mountain Relocation Center, Wyoming, during World War II. Her grandfather was a part of the 442nd infantry regiment, a unit consisting of primarily Japanese American soldiers during World War II.

Her grandparents would be proud of this young woman who is making a name for herself in the film industry. She is a good representative for the Asian American population.
