FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THE TOP TEN FILMS OF THE ASIAN AMERICAN FILM LAB'S

8TH ANNUAL 72 HOUR FILM SHOOTOUT ANNOUNCED

New York, NY -- July 29, 2012 -- The Asian American Film Lab (AAFilmLab) screened the top ten films of the Eighth Annual 72 Hour Film Shootout ("Shootout"), yesterday afternoon at the Asian American International Film Festival, under the auspices of and in collaboration with Asian CineVision.    AAFilmLab's first female president, Jennifer Betit Yen, began the ceremony by thanking the filmmakers and film fans for their support of ethnic and gender diversity in film.  She explained, "[t]he 72 Hour Shootout is about empowerment.  It enable filmmakers with the opportunity to seize 72 hours within which to tell virtually any story they want in virtually any way they can imagine.  The filmmakers [who participated in the Shootout] took control over their own stories.  They became independents instead of dependents, leaders instead of followers, creators instead of mainstream mimics.  Every single one of them deserves accolades for stepping up to the plate and daring to tell their stories.  In doing so, they said, "we are not "the other.'  We will not be marginalized.  We will not be silenced.'" 

The awards were as follows:

1) RiLL - Distance

2) Jong-IL - Maybe Baby*

3) ROMIX Productions - Doggie Style*
