The competition creates a valuable opportunity for filmmakers of color – focusing on Asian American filmmakers – and women, as well as other underrepresented groups, to demonstrate their talent, gain exposure in the entertainment industry and impact the visibility of diverse stories and characters in film. One of the Shootout requirements is that at least one key production member (e.g., director, producer or writer) and a principal actor from each team must be of Asian descent.
Past Judges include hip hop icon Russell Simmons, producer Teddy Zee, ABC Primetime Casting Director Marci Phillips and playwright David Henry Hwang, among many others.
The top 40 films will roll out on AAFL TV. Subscribe for free at YouTube.com/asamfilmlab so you get to see them all!
FREE networking and educational filmmaking workshops March – June and, for the top ten, screenings, screen tests and network TV mentorships!
The actual Shootout itself takes place the first Thursday – Sunday of June. Films are based on a common theme which is announced online that Thursday evening around 8pm EST.
