Perspectives 360 Film Festival: Virus Has No Nationality

The Ithaca Asian American Association invites you to share your story through your lens, as you interpret and express your meaning of "Virus Has No Nationality."

You are encouraged to be bold in challenging issues of racism, sexism, xenophobia, ableism, heterosexism, classism, and all -isms. Through a five-minute film, we hope your creative expressions will inspire hope and possibilities for a better tomorrow.

The film festival is open to everyone regardless of age, experience, and status. All you need is a video recording device such as your phone. Films can be completed as an individual or group and must be submitted through FilmFreeway by Monday, May 31 to be screened on Friday, June 11, 2021, at 7:00 p.m. An award presentation will follow.
