Vote For Your Favorite Short Waves Video

Comments

Vote for your favorite Short Waves Video thru May 22. 

In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, WGBH in collaboration with the Boston Asian American Film Festival (BAAFF) held an Open Call for short videos through the WGBH Lab.
 
Asian Pacific Americans have long been making waves in all aspects of American life, but their stories have often been lost in general U.S. discourse. “Short Waves: Stories Shaping Our Community,” hopes to bring light to these stories through locally made, short films about the Asian American experience and community.

The top four submissions can be viewed below, and were selected by a distinguished panel of judges:

  • Tak Toyoshima, Creator/Secret Asian Man, Creative Director/Weekly Dig
  • Donald Young, Director of Programs, Center for Asian American Media
  • Judith Vecchione, Executive Producer, WGBH 


Please help determine the finalist and vote for your favorite.

The finalist will have the honor of automatic acceptance in the 2011 Boston Asian American Film Festival this November and possible broadcast on WGBH WORLD.
