More info below and after the jumps.

  • The Short Film Initiative encourages the development of narrative storytelling and experimental expression. The Initiative seeks to fund innovative projects up to two minutes in length that uncover distinctive new stories and voices of Pacific Islander culture. This year's Short Film Initiative takes a look at Humor in the Pacific in all of its forms. From satire and comedy to humorous stories, this initiative is a way to explore what it means to be Pacific Islander. Completed works will be offered to national public television during Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May 2007.
