More info:

The Shootout will take place in June with the winning films showing in summer 2018 under the auspices of and in collaboration with Asian CineVision. The Shootout is a worldwide competition in which filmmaking teams are given a common theme at the start (usually 8pm EST, the first Thursday of June) and then have 72 hours to write, shoot, edit, and complete short films up to five minutes in length. They can create their films anywhere in the world and submit them online. They do not have to be in New York, although that is where the premiere and other live events will take place.

Teams compete for access to a year of free educational and networking events, mentorships with executives at NBC and more, cash, prizes and the chance to have their films screened at film festivals, both nationally and internationally. The competition creates a valuable opportunity for filmmakers of color – focusing on Asian American filmmakers, women, and other filmmakers of color – 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 more.

The top 40 films roll out on AAFL TV. Subscribe for free at YouTube.com/asamfilmlab so you get to see them all!
