The Austin Asian American Film Festival is partnering with Frost Bank and the Asian American Cultural Center to offer two scholarships for the Austin Film Society’s documentary summer camp workshop. These scholarships are open to students ages 14 to 17. Successful applicants will receive a full scholarship to the workshop, which will take place from June 25th through 29th at Austin Public, 1143 Northwestern Avenue. Participants will produce a short documentary on the theme “Our Town.” Recipients of an AAAFF scholarship will use their documentaries to explore an Asian American subject of their choosing. Applicants should include a 200-500 word pitch for their proposed documentary.*
*Those selected for the scholarships are expected but not required to follow their pitch precisely, so long as the resulting documentary reflects an Asian American theme. Applicants do not need to be Asian American.
