Finally there's a film festival for mixed people!
When I was younger there weren't any forums for children of interracial couples to talk about our issues and share our experiences with one another. But I'm so glad that things have changed for the better. Halle Berry won an Oscar, Tiger Woods rules the fairway and there's a biracial canidate running for president. It's good to be mixed!
The ladies over at MixedChicksChat.com are putting together the 1st Annual Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival to be held in Los Angeles on June 12th - 15th at the Japanese American National Museum. They have an open call for submissions (films, artwork, poetry, etc.) and it's free to submit. They're also taking requests for workshops, so if public speaking is your thing then maybe you can craft a workshop for the festival. For more info you can visit their website or email mixedchicks[at]yahoo[dot]com - But don't wait too long to submit, the deadline is March 4th.
