Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival accepting submissions until March 15

Deadline is TODAY so it's a little late for this year, but you filmmakers could put this on your list for next… the Mixed Roots Film and Literary Festival. Details below.


The Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival is still accepting submissions for the 2012 Festival, held this year on June 16 and 17 in Little Tokyo at the Japanese American National Museum. 

Now in its fifth year, the Mixed Roots festival is seeking submissions of all genres and formats in film, literature and live performance that explore the mixed experience, including but not limited to interracial relationships, transracial and transcultural adoptions and more. Recently we've been highlighted in the New York Times and Ebony magazine. 

And for those interested in teaching and helping artists grow and hone their skills, the festival is always interested in workshops that assist with the craft of story telling, working with actors, new media, directing, producing and writing for television, film and theatre. We're also interested in what other new ideas you can bring to the table!

The deadline to apply and submit your work is March 15. You can apply through the website at www.mxroots.org.
