Event Description

The Shootout will take place in June with the winning films showing in summer 2017 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.

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 – and women 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.
