Mixed Remixed Festival
A Film, Book & Media Festival Celebrating the Mixed Experience
I am excited to announce my new festival project, the Mixed Remixed Festival, that promises to be the premiere event celebrating stories of the Mixed experience through films and books. Join us at the Japanese American National Museum in downtown Los Angeles June 14, 2014. Learn more about Mixed Remixed Festival below or visit our website www.mixedremixed.org.
In 2008, I became a founder of the Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival, an annual free public event, to celebrate storytelling of the Mixed racial and cultural experience including transracial/transcultural adoption and interracial/intercultural relationships. The last Mixed Roots Film & Literary Festival was held in 2012 at the Japanese American National Museum in downtown LA.

The Mixed Remixed Festival is brought to you by a founder of the original Mixed Roots film and book festival and an incredible group of volunteers. The original festival showcased many talented filmmakers, writers, and performers including Key & Peele, Rebecca Walker, Kip Fulbeck, Danzy Senna, Carleen Brice, Kim Wayans & Kevin Knotts, Angela Nissel, Neil Aitken, Mat Johnson, Faith Adiele, Sundee Frasier, Karyn Parsons, Dr. Maya Soetoro-Ng and many many more. Future events of the Mixed Remixed Festival promise to be even bigger and better!
Through film screenings, readings, workshops and performance, the Fest highlights previously untold stories of our connectedness as a community and a nation across cultural, racial and religious divides; provides a safe, positive forum for honest discussions about race and culture; encourages emerging storytellers’ careers; and promotes the Mixed experience as a valuable prism with which to view issues of social justice and change.
The Mixed Remixed Festival is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of the Mixed Remixed Festival must be made payable to Fractured Atlas only and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
