Script from San Diago Asian FF Awards Ceremony:
It is almost every filmmaker's dream and goal to create a feature-length film. But to create a narrative feature is not only a daunting task, it is one of the most difficult projects an independent filmmaker can accomplish.

From script writing, casting, storyboarding, scouting locations, shooting, editing, and begging friends and family for money and hiding from creditors… the process can take years. And even after the film is completed, there's no guarantee that the film will be seen by an audience. It must be completely driven by passion.
And that is what the grand jurors saw in this year's winner, which is not only a first-time feature film for the director, but it also embodies what Asian American cinema is all about.

One grand juror commented, "Finally! A film without gimmicks. Just great acting, great writing, and a real, honest love story. It's better than most films coming out of Hollywood."

This year's winner for Best Dramatic Narrative Feature goes to CHARLOTTE SOMETIMES by ERIC BYLER.
