After a successful inaugural year that saw winning short films screened at the 2017 Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, HBO’s APA Visionaries Short Film competition is back for 2018!
This year, HBO has partnered with the totally awesome Leonardo Nam (Westworld) to seek short film submissions exploring themes of belonging, identity and culture. Check out this year’s competition announcement video (featuring Nam) after the jump!
The competition is currently open for submissions, and filmmakers have until November 1, 2017 to submit their films. Not only will the top three short films receive a cash prize, but they will be screened at LAAPF 2018, and will also be screened through HBO!
For more information, and to submit your work, check out the competition website here!
