THANK YOU FOR THE OVERWHELMING SUBMISSIONS TO THE AIM CASTING CALENDAR PROJECT AND THE AIM WRITERS’ LOGLINE CAMPAIGN.
Over the last few months, VAFF has outreached to numerous writers, actors, filmmakers and regular people across North America to submit to our AIM Casting Calendar Project and AIM Writers’ Logline Campaign. We have been overwhelmed by the positive feedback and heartfelt encouragement for our advocacy efforts to increase Asian Canadian and Asian American representation in front and behind the cameras.
Therefore, to allow for a greater number of people to get involved and to get familar and informed about these issues, VAFF has decided to expand our campaign over a one year period with 4 quarterly deadlines – Sept, January, May, August. At the end of each quarter, 3 Casting winners will be selected along with 3 Logline winners. A movie poster of each of the winning Loglines will still be created featuring the Casting winners. Then a 3 month digital calendar will be produced and these will still be promoted and sent out online to filmmakers, directors, producers, studios, casting directors and production companies.
All unselected submissions will automatically be carried forward to the next deadline, so there is no need to resubmit.
THANK YOU again to all those that have already submitted and the first 3 winners will be announced in November. Please encourage others to submit as we want to create a large database of writers and casting talent to support and promote.
