And the winners are
The grand prize winner for the 2008 Scion/DC APA Film Festival Trailer Contest is Chihwen Lo's frenetic example of the classic battle of "man vs. tape". It's a great reflection of the DIY style of many of the filmmakers in this year's festival and we're proud to have it represent us this year.
Congratulations to Chihwen, Paul, and Jason for their terrific entries into the contest and thank you for picking the winner! You can see the winning trailer before any screening of the film festival starting on Opening Night on Thursday.
