The top ten films from the Asian American Film Lab 72 Hour Film Shootout will screen at this year's Asians on Film Festival on Sunday Feb. 16 at J.E.T. Studios in North Hollywood.

Actor James Kyson Lee and Asian American Film Lab's Jennifer Betit Yen, will co-host the screening, with special guests NaRhee Ahn and Aaron Woolfolk.

The screening is a first between AAFL and AOF.

The annual 72 Hour Film Shootout (“Shootout”) is a worldwide competition in which filmmaking teams are given a common theme at the start and then have 72 hours to write, shoot, edit, and complete short films.

The competition creates a valuable opportunity for Asian American filmmakers and other filmmakers of color to demonstrate their talent, gain exposure in the entertainment industry and impact the visibility of Asian American stories and characters in film.

Teams compete for prizes and the chance to have their films screened at the prestigious Asian American International Film Festival (“AAIFF”), now in its 36th year and New York’s leading festival for independent Asian and Asian American film and video.
