    The Asian American Film Lab is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which originally developed in 1998 as a small New York-based screenwriting workshop series to develop, promote and improve screenplays. The Film Lab has since expanded across the globe and includes hundreds of professionals of all colors and from all aspects of the entertainment industry working together with the common goal of advancing and supporting the inclusion of all people of color in the arts, particularly film. Our focus is on creating, promoting and supporting gender and ethnic diversity in film and television through monthly programs in our different departments: (1) Unfinished Works; (2) Industry Spotlight; (3) Connections; (4) Production and Original Content (AAFL TV); and (5) the 72 Hour Shootout (an annual event). The Film Lab is run under the direction of President and actor Jennifer Betit Yen and Acting and Advisory Board members include Aaron Woolfolk, Eric Lin, Bea Soong, John Woo, Erik Lu, and James Kyson.

    Unfinished Works
    The Film Lab's longest running program, Unfinished Works€ has assisted screenwriters for 15+ years. Unfinished Works constitutes an avenue for filmmakers, screenwriters, and actors to share and workshop their work at any stage of development for honest feedback. The feedback process includes a reading of the piece by professional Film Lab actors and is carefully structured to provide assistance with drafting, editing, outlining, and more. Lorna Nowve heads up this program. For consideration, screenwriters may email their logline and synopsis to Lorna Nowve UnfinishedWorks@film-lab.org. For program guidelines and requirements, please visit our homepage.

    The Film Lab Actor Directory, a core group of talented and dedicated artists who have demonstrated commitment both to their craft and to diversity in film and television, is open to writers in the Unfinished Works Program for casting purposes. To link to it, go to our homepage!

    Industry Spotlight
    Industry Spotlight provides an opportunity for guests and industry professionals to teach others, share ideas, and to gain support and exposure by presenting a workshop, participating in a discussion or panel on an industry topic and sharing their experience. Industry Spotlight has encompassed everything from a casting workshop for musical theatre and commercials moderated by Casting Director Cairlin Jones of Liz Lewis Casting to a nuts-to-bolts filmmaking workshop by feature film Wedding Palace director Christine Yoo to a storyboarding how-to workshop to fundraising and social media how-to's for filmmakers to monologue workshops for actors. If you are an industry professional looking to share your expertise in any aspect of the entertainment business, please contact Dan Finley at IndustrySpotlight@film-lab.org.

    Connections consists of social events designed to encourage networking and collaboration among entertainment professionals of color.

    72 Hour Shootout
    The 72 Hour Film Shootout ("€œShootout") is a worldwide competition organized by the Asian American Film Lab, in which filmmaking teams have 72 hours to write, shoot, edit and produce short films up to five minutes in length on a common theme. The intention of this competition is to create opportunities for Asian Americans to demonstrate their talent, gain exposure in the entertainment industry and to impact the visibility of Asian American stories and characters in film and television. In order to meet this goal, the Film Lab require that at least one key production member and a lead actor from each team must be of Asian descent. This annual competition has inspired hundreds of filmmakers by helping nascent talent take brave steps towards a filmmaking career. Judges from the 2012 Shootout included hip hop pioneer Russell Simmons, Executive Director of Casting for ABC Primetime Marci Phillips, and more!
