call for entries: id film fest, philly, toronto, vancouver, dc, sd

Calling all APA filmmakers! Check it. Here's some film festival submission information for you and your films... the Japanese American National Museum is now accepting film and video submissions for its first annual ID Film Fest, a new film series dedicated to the theme of identity crisis in the pan-Asia and Asian American communities. Scheduled for September 25-28, the festival will showcase both shorts and features to be screened digitally in the Democracy Forum. For more information on the festival and how to submit your film, go here. The submission deadline is July 1.

I mentioned this before, but it's worth a reminder... the very first annual Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival is happening this fall, October 24-30 at The Bridge: Cinema de Lux. You have a chance to be a part of history, by submitting your film to the Philadelphia's inaugural Asian American film festival (why should Pittsburgh have all the fun?), so get those entries in! For more information, visit the festival website here.

My friends over at the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival implore me to remind you that they're currently accepting submissions for their 12th annual festival, happening in November. Whether it's "obscure experimental works, complex political rants, ironic chop-socky kung fu flicks, deconstructionist mockumentaries, or minimalist GenerAsian-X slacker dramas," they're interested in seenig it, as long as it's "brilliant, creative, weird, or just plain entertaining." The early deadling has passed, but the final deadline is June 16. For more information, go here.

But let us not forget the Vancouver Asian Film Festival, Canada's oldest festival dedicatd to exhibiting films and videos by North American artists of Asian heritage, also happening this November. The final deadline is coming up quick—May 31, postmarked, no exceptions. So better get your ass in gear. For more information, including submission guidelines, visit the festival website here.

And heck, while I'm at it, I'll add that you can still make the late submission deadlines for the 9th Annual DC APA Film Festival (May 31) and the 9th Annual San Diego Asian Film Festival (June 13). Maybe we'll get to see your film on the big screen. But you'll never know if you don't submit.
