All roads point to fest

National Geo creates fest for minority-culture filmmakers

HOLLYWOOD — Stockard Channing, Shekhar Kapur, Spike Lee, Kiefer Sutherland and Forest Whitaker have joined National Geographic’s All Roads Film Project advisory board. The new initiative aims to provide a global platform for indigenous and underrepresented minority-culture filmmakers around the world.

The program will host an international film festival in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., in the fall.

Advisory board members will nominate films for the fest, help identify new talent and teach master classes to aspiring filmmakers. In addition to representatives of the mainstream entertainment community, the advisory board is composed of indigenous and minority-culture filmmakers and National Geographic reps.

National Geographic is accepting submissions from filmmakers for the All Roads Film Festival; the deadline is May 31. All types of films will be considered, including feature-length films, shorts, documentaries, animation and musicvideos for adults, families and kids. The films can be in any language (English subtitles required), and the productions will be considered for broadcast on the National Geographic Channel.

Information about the All Roads Film Project and the 2004 film festival is available at nationalgeographic.com/allroads, or by email at allroads@ngs.org.
