Call For Entries: San Diego Asian Film Festival 2010

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Got this sent in from the good folks down at the SDAFF (Thanks Dan) and wanted to make sure and post it on up for all the filmmakers out there doing their thing because you'd be lying to yourselves if you said you never wanted anyone to see your films except for your grandmama and that scary guy that looks into your windows with binoculars.

And yes.

I'm always watching you*.

The San Diego Asian Film Foundation (SDAFF) is proud to announce its 2010 call for entries. SDAFF will celebrate its 11th annual film festival season to an estimated audience of more than 18,000 during 8 days of film, panels, and exciting special events.

Festival programmers also select a first-time filmmaker to receive the George C. Lin Emerging Filmmaker Award, which is accompanied by a $1,000 prize.

Films/videos submitted must be directed or principally acted by an artist of Asian or Pacific Islander descent; or whose subject matter relates to Asian or Pacific Islander culture.

* Except for when you're doing research by screening those "art" films. I'm doing a little more than just watching at that moment.
