Hello again! This week we’re taking a break from the usual “Where Are They Now?” updates to focus on a bit of Mixed Roots news. By this, of course, I mean the upcoming Festival!! (Well, upcoming may be a bit of a stretch. After all, the Festival isn’t until this June, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start planning!)
Speaking of planning, Mixed Roots is already accepting submissions for films, workshops, readings, and performances for this Festival. There is no fee to submit your work, but don’t wait! Submissions will only be accepted until March 5th. (I’d get on this right away! If we’re going to keep having amazing Festivals, then we have to put our work out there!)
Just check out this website to get more info about entering. And if you’ve never heard of the Mixed Roots Film and Literary Festival before, then aren’t you in for a treat! Take a bit of time to explore this website, and please consider coming to the Festival!
This year’s Festival will take place at the Japanese American National Museum, 369 East 1st Street, June 16-17, 2012, in downtown Los Angeles. Don’t forget to enter all submissions before the 5th of March! I can’t wait to find out all the great activities and panels we’ll have this year!
