The 41st Asian American International Film Festival, with support from SAG-AFTRA, is pleased to present the annual screenplay reading, which features this year’s AAISC winning script LOVE YOU, CHARLIE by William Yu, directed by Veronica Dang.
LOVE YOU, CHARLIE
When her best friend is coerced into confessing a murder, high school senior Alice Park maintains he’s innocent and embarks on a desperate search to obtain his freedom and find the real killer.
Co-presented by SAG-AFTRA and Leviathan Lab (?)
William Yu believes in blurring the line where passion and discomfort meet. He is currently a freelance writer (2018 Middlebury Script Lab Semi-Finalist) and former advertising brand and digital strategist. During his experiences at TBWAChiatDay and SapientRazorfish, Yu worked on projects for brands like BNY Mellon, Accenture, Verizon, and Mastercard.
Yu created #StarringJohnCho, an award winning (2016 Shorty Award) social movement that calls for greater Asian-American representation in film. The project has garnered over 1 billion impressions worldwide and continues the conversation of how Asian-Americans are perceived in our society today.
His work has been featured on major media outlets such as The New York Times, BBC, CNN, among others.
