Here’s another announcement from the folks at MixedChicksChat.com:
The First Annual Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival
We are now accepting submissions. This is going to be a wonderful event held at the Japanese American National Museum in LA on the anniversary of the Loving decision (June 12-15, 2008). Please see submission info below:
The Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival will be an annual event celebrating films and literary works exploring racially and culturally Mixed heritages. The Festival is created to support and encourage emerging and established filmmakers and writers to tell stories of the racially and culturally Mixed experience.
We are currently seeking submissions for films and literary works as well as workshop proposals. If you are submitting a film, please send a short synopsis, bio and the film in DVD format. If you are interested in reading your own literary work (plays, poetry, fiction, screenplays, creative nonfiction, spoken word) please e-mail a bio and 10 pages of your published or unpublished writing. If you would like to lead a workshop, please send a bio and an outline of your workshop. Workshops are allotted 1-2 hours.
Please send your films to:

If you would like us to return your film please include a self-addressed envelope with postage paid. If you would like acknowledgment of your submission, please include a self-addressed stamped postcard.
Please e-mail your literary work or workshop proposal to: firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Mixed Roots Film & Literary Submission’ in the subject line.
There is no fee for submissions. The deadline for submissions is: Tuesday, March 4th 2008 (if you have a film in post production and need more time, please contact us). You will receive an e-mail notification by Friday, April 4th 2008.
