Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival 2010 Now Accepting Submissions

We were excited to get this announcement from the Mixed Race Film & Literary Festival in the Racialicious mailbox:

The 3rd Annual Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival will take place at the Japanese American National Museum, 369 East 1st Street, June 12-13, 2010, in downtown Los Angeles.

The Festival is currently accepting film, literary, performance, and workshop submissions.

The Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival, a fiscally sponsored project of the New York Foundation for the Arts, is gearing up once again to celebrate the storytelling of the Mixed racial and cultural experience, from interracial and intercultural relationships, to transracial and transcultural adoptions, and, anyone who identifies as having a biracial, multiracial, Hapa or Mixed identity.

In the last two years, the Festival has showcased many talented filmmakers, writers, and performers including Rebecca Walker, Kip Fulbeck, Danzy Senna, Angela Nissel, Sundee Frasier, Karyn Parsons and many more.

The 2010 Festival will bring together innovative artists, film and book lovers, multiracial individuals and families for two days of writing and film workshops, readings, film screenings, and live performances. Events are free and open to the public.

The call for submissions for films, workshops and readings and performances by writers, actors, comedians and musicians is open now until March 1. There is no submission fee. However, entries received after March 1 and by March 20 MUST pay a $50 late entry fee. No entries will be accepted after March 20.
