You've been asking, and here it is! Shaw Multicultural Channel presents a special program showcasing the winners of the MIGHTY ASIAN MOVIEMAKING MARATHON 2005 - 2007! Tune in to see provocative and creative 10-minute local films produced by teams of filmmakers during each year's competition.

I am happy and excited that Shaw is putting on this special event, and that you have a chance to catch some incredibly creative short films. And I'm even more excited that 2 of the 9 movies will be films I was lucky to be a part of. Details of the airing can be found here.

I first started competing in this contest in 2006, and our film entry, "Rise of the Kitara" won 2nd place that year! I got to play Kitara, a character most of you would never, ever, think of casting me as... and it was sooo much fun.

A roller coaster ride of two opposites, their chance meeting, and their struggles to de-cloak each other's true identities. "Andy" (Ed Fong) a young cable professional goes about his normal day when he meets his unexpected fantasy girl, "Kitara" (Lannette New). Fearful and curious for her son, "Mom" (Shirley Fong) starts her own investigation to expose this lady of mystery.

2007 brought about new levels of challenges as our team decided to make a musical film in 10 days -10 short, sweaty, exhausting, fun, and rewarding days. The end result was, "E.V.E.S.", and we managed to come in 3rd place that year. As well, we won the 2007 Audience Choice Award!

E.V.E.S. is a sci-fi musical set in the future where women rule all. OK, there's more to it than that, but I've misplaced the spiel and am too excited to let you know about the showing that I can't wait. What I can tell you is that there's good, there's evil, it's sexy, it's sweet, there's craziness and more, PLUS there's a huge musical/dance sequence to boot.

I hope you get a chance to catch the films. I'm so proud of our accomplishments, as I'm sure the other groups are of theirs. And what a great way to share them with you!
