Locus Arts, in conjunction with the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival (SFIAAFF) presented by the Center for Asian American Media, is calling for musicians and filmmakers.
Presenting the Do It Yourself Music Video Night, Locus Arts is teaming up Asian American musicians with Asian American filmmakers to make music videos to premier at a Locus Arts event in February 2008.
Teams will also compete in an online voting contest, hosted on www.asianamericanmedia.org, as part of an affiliate event with the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival. The winning video of the online voting contest will be screened in the Music Video Asia program at SFIAAFF and the winning musician/musicians will also get a chance to play at a live event at SFIAAFF.
