The Film Lab (TM) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization devoted to the promotion and support of gender and ethnic parity in film and television programming.
It also runs the famous 72 Hour Shootout (TM), an annual, high-profile filmmaking competition organized with the support of ABC, NBC, CrossingsTV, Time Warner, Asian CineVision, the Asian American International Film Festival and many others, through which it works to ensure that stories and voices too often silenced in mainstream media are heard, not just as whispers, but as SHOUTS to the world.
