Are you a filmmaker that identifies as hapa/mixed or Asian/Pacific Islander? Do you want to submit your work to a festival that is not going to charge you an entry fee?
The latter was a silly question. If you're an indie filmmaker, we already know you're broke!
The Japanese American National Museum is accepting film and video submissions for their third annual ID Film Festival, set to take place October 7-10, 2010 at the Tateuchi Democracy Forum theater in downtown Los Angeles.
You have until July 1, 2010 to enter (details below) and get your shot at schmoozing with the burgeoning API filmmaking community. Past filmmakers that have screened at the fest include Quentin Lee (Shopping for Fangs) and Tad Nakamura (A Song for Ourselves).
Please send a one-paged synopsis of the work along with contact info (e-mail, address and phone), a short biography of the filmmaker and a DVD screener to the:
