18th DisOrient – Asian American Film Festival | Call for Entry 2023

The DisOrient Asian American Film Festival (USA) is accepting films until December 16, 2022. *Only for Asian/Pacific Islanders*

About the festival:
As Oregon’s premiere Asian American film festival, DisOrient is celebrating 18 years of presenting the richness and breadth of Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander stories and voices. We are committed to promoting social justice and increasing AANHPI representation. We don’t limit to specifically AANHPI stories, but invite submission of good stories that feature Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders in front of and/or behind the camera, in wide-ranging roles.

While the Pacific Northwest is not known for its diversity, DisOrient proudly maintains this platform to amplify diverse voices–and your film will have an impact! Home to the University of Oregon and host of the Track and Field World Championships, Eugene is both down to earth and internationally recognized. Our festival attracts an eclectic, intelligent audience that enthusiastically supports our festival. DisOrient is known for thoughtfully curated films and friendly Eugene hospitality, and is a favorite among attending filmmakers.
