Past Shootout launch parties have been attended by hundreds of local filmmakers and their supporters. Registered teams from across the United States, Canada and Asia have spent the requisite 72 hours intensively conceiving and creating their films. Competitors vied for cash and prizes. The top ten finalists’ films premier at the Asian American International Film Festival in New York City, hosted by Asian CineVision and many past winners have screened at festivals nationwide. Past Shootout sponsors have included Toyota and MTV, among others. The 9th Annual 72 Hour Shootout will commence on May 31, 2013, with the announcement of the competition theme at the New York City launch party (which will be simultaneously relayed over the internet to the world). This year, we anticipate between at least 100 teams with an average of five people per team (a total roughly 375 to 500 participants). Additionally, we expect the event to attract over 300 attendees at each of our events including the Launch Party, Wrap Party, Screening, and After Party, not to mention the countless numbers of spirited supporters and enthusiasts reached through email, community outreach, and word of mouth. Right now, over one million Asian Americans reside in the New York City area alone—the fastest growing ethnic community, and the Shootout, in conjunction with the Asian American International Film Festival will have something that will cater to virtually the entire market.
This is a wonderful opportunity for those interested in targeting directors, producers, actors and screenwriters of color, particularly those of Asian American descent. This is a way to give back to the community and to ensure that Asian American and other diverse American voices and stories are heard. There is no other annual filmmaking competition that targets the Asian American community in this manner. We encourage sponsors to get involved early for this very exciting and rewarding event as we anticipate significant growth and interest in The Shootout in the coming years.

We look forward to a long-standing relationship with you as this competition grows in popularity and size.
