Calling all Actors, Filmmakers and Creatives! Celebrating diversity and artistic empowerment, the 16th Annual 72 Hour Film Shootout ("Shootout") returns this summer in collaboration with Asian CineVision and is now accepting registrations for this summer's Shootout competition from filmmakers, actors, writers, directors, etc. Registrations begins March 1st 2020, at www.asianamericanfilmlab.org/72-Hour-Shootout. The Shootout is a worldwide competition in which filmmaking teams are given a common theme, and have 72 hours to write, film, edit, and complete short films up to five minutes in length.
Teams compete for prizes, mentorships and the chance to have their films screened at the prestigious 43rd Asian American International Film Festival ("AAIFF"), New York's leading festival for independent Asian and Asian American film and video. As an integral part of AAIFF, the Shootout celebrates the creativity and genius of the directors, casts and crews as they share stories by, about and for Asian Americans and other filmmakers of color with the world. AAIFF has played a vital role in discovering and nurturing such acclaimed talent as Wayne Wang (THE JOY LUCK CLUB), Ang Lee (CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN), Mira Nair (THE NAMESAKE), Zhang Yimou (HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS), Christine Choy (WHO KILLED VINCENT CHIN?), Steven Okazaki (THE MUSHROOM CLUB), Jessica Yu (PING PONG PLAYA), and Justin Lin (FAST FIVE).
