Hey filmmakers, here's your opportunity to show your labor of love at the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival (aka SFIAAFF or "sfee-aff") hosted by the Center for Asian American Media (formerly known as NAATA). Here's their call for entries for their 27th annual festival coming up March 2009 in the Bay Area. There's a bunch of categories, including short films.
According to CAAM, the festival is the largest showcase of Asian and Asian Am films, like, ever. Seriously, though, I've been going since 1996 and it's one of the highlights of the year, always showcasing some new talent as well as some veteran filmmakers, like Spencer Nakasako and Wayne Wang, among many, many others. It seems to get bigger and better each year.
In other film news, catch a screening of a new film: "Project Kashmir" is screening in NY and LA, a documentary by Senain Kheshgi and Geeta V. Patel, about Kashmir. Playing August 8 to 14 at the Village Cinema East in New York, at August 22 to 28 at the Arclight Hollywood in Los Angeles.
