NJISACF 2012 - Call For Submission
Sixth New Jersey Independent South Asian Cine Fest
Call for Submission
Sixth New Jersey Independent South Asian Cine Fest (NJISACF), 2012,
produced by the Asian American Film and Theater Project, will take place in September 2012, in New Jersey, USA . The festival will showcase independent films by or about South Asians from all over the world including a sidebar on Children’s films.
The festival will also feature panel discussions with participation from filmmakers, scholars and academics from a variety of disciplines.
Jury and Audience Choice Prizes will be awarded for excellence in various categories.
Through NJSACF, our mission is to introduce our target audience of about 250,000 South Asians as well as the mainstream American population in the New Jersey-Pennsylvania-New York-Connecticut area to some of the alternative brilliant films that reflect the complex experiences of being a South Asian in the 21st century perhaps more truthfully than some of the big banner commercial films do.
Our goal is to ensure maximum media attention (American mainstream and South Asian), for both the festival and for individual films.
Filmmakers are invited to submit films of all genres, formats and length.
Submission deadline is June 30, 2012.
