Caylee is the co-founder of the Cambodia Town Film Festival, an honorary committee member of the Cambodian International Film Festival, a recipient of the Linda Mabalot’s New Directors/New Visions Award, and a winner of the 32nd annual Los Angeles County “Women of the Year” award. In 2018, Caylee co-directed the award winning feature film IN THE LIFE OF MUSIC.
