CHICAGO – Chicago’s Asian Pop-Up Cinema (APUC) continues their “Funniest Stay-At-Home Short Film Competition, and the deadline is extended through May 15th, 2020. The idea is – while many of us are staying at home during the pandemic quarantine – to create a one-minute film while you’re “inside.”

Put your phone to “video” setting or get your most expensive Panavision camera out and shoot a one minute short film (editing is accepted) that expresses the funny side of our current inside-the-home life. A panel of judges from around the world, combining local experts (Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com is chair of the Selection Committee) and international Asian Pop-Up contributors – including actors Christian Bables of the Philippines and Kathy Wu in Los Angeles – will take part in determining the TOP FIVE best of the submissions. Those five will be shown on the big screen during APUC’s Season 11 (scheduled for September 8th-October 8th, 2020).

Chicago’s Asian Pop-Up Cinema – curated by veteran film programmer Sophia Wong Boccio – is dedicated to highlighting films in different Asian territories … for example in Season Ten it was Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan. Most of the screenings are presented at the festival’s primary venue, AMC River East 21 in Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood, and other select titles are screened at the venues of APUC’s collaborative partners.
