Now Accepting Applications for the 2010 POV Youth Filmmaking Workshop

Washington DC — Asian Pacific American Film (APA Film) announces the 4th year of the P.O.V. Workshop, a youth filmmaking training program designed to empower and provide a voice to local Asian Pacific American youth by teaching them the art of movie-making. The P.O.V. Youth Filmmaker Workshop program consists of a series of workshops taking place over the course of six consecutive weekends, during which participants will learn the necessary skills and steps to create a short film from conception to completion.

P.O.V. aims to encourage the artistic development of young people within our community between the ages of 16 to 19, by giving them hands-on experience in the techniques of filmmaking. Students will receive valuable insight into the creative and technical strategies essential for conceptualizing, developing, and producing films. Classes will involve a wide range of topics that will give students the opportunity to expand their knowledge and put it to immediate use.

The P.O.V. workshop will also provide an opportunity to showcase students’ work to the general public. Participants will work together to create a final short film that will premiere during the 11th annual DC APA Film Festival.

The workshop will be led by Grace Choi, Jenny Kim, Gina Rhee, Mike Song, and Chris Tsou and will feature local filmmakers and professionals as guest instructors. They will share their expertise and expose students to various types of jobs available in the film industry. Classes will be held each Saturday from July 17 to August 21, at a metro-accessible location in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

Applications must be postmarked by June 18th. Selected applicants will be notified by Saturday, June 26th via email. Applications are available on our festival website,, and can be submitted by:
