Tenth Annual 72 Hour Shootout Filmmaking Competition Launches June 6th!
The Korea Society will be hosting the Launch Party for the Asian American Film Lab's 10th Annual 72 Hour Shootout Filmmaking Competition, celebrating and promoting diversity in film and giving voices to artists of color.
The Shootout creates opportunities for filmmakers of color, particularly Asians and Asian Americans, to demonstrate their talent, gain exposure in the entertainment industry and create positive significant impact on the visibility of Asian and Asian American stories and characters in film and television. 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.
The 10th Annual 72 Hour Film Shootout begins on June 6, 2014, at the beautiful Korea Society venue in Manhattan. The competition theme will be announced there at 8:00PM EST and simultaneously posted on the internet at http://www.asianamericanfilmlab.com/

About The Korea Society
THE KOREA SOCIETY is a private, nonprofit, nonpartisan, 501(c)(3) organization with individual and corporate members that is dedicated solely to the promotion of greater awareness, understanding and cooperation between the people of the United States and Korea. In pursuit of its mission, the Society arranges programs that facilitate discussion, exchanges and research on topics of vital interest to both countries in the areas of public policy, business, education, intercultural relations and the arts. Funding for these programs is derived from contributions, endowments, grants, membership dues and program fees. From its base in New York City, the Society serves audiences across the country through its own outreach efforts and by forging strategic alliances with counterpart organizations in other cities throughout the United States as well as in Korea. The Korea Society traces its roots to 1957 when a group of prominent Americans, under the leadership of General James A. Van Fleet, who commanded the U.S. armed forces in the final phase of the Korean War, established the first nonprofit organization in the United States dedicated to the promotion of friendly relations between the people of the United States and Korea "through mutual understanding and appreciation of their respective cultures, aims, ideals, arts, sciences and industries."
