A week ago we blogged about a new event that RA filmmaker and Director of A Drummer’s Passion Mingu Kim was working on.  The Arirang Korea Smartphone Film Festival is looking for short videos by Canadian residents, 4 min max and made entirely on a smartphone.  The video must contain a narrative of Korean content and/or a Korean person playing a key role in production (e.g. director, producer, editor, actor, etc…).  They have just extended their deadline to this Sunday April 22 @ midnight.  Sweet prizes include $1500 cash and a Samsung Galaxy Tablet.  Download the submission form here.
