Call for Submissions for the "Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival"

This information is from Heidi Durrow, author of the blog Light-Skinneded Girl, where she writes about her experiences as a biracial woman and other race-related issues. Check it out by clicking here. If you like to write about or make movies on racial issues and the varied intersections of culture in your heritage, I encourage you to submit your work to the first annual Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival. Please continue reading for more information.

We are Heidi Durrow and Fanshen Cox, co-hosts of Mixed Chicks Chat, the only live weekly show about being racially and culturally Mixed.

We are excited to announce the first annual Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival to take place this June 12th through the 15th at the Los Angeles Japanese American National Museum.
