Last year we wrote about the PROUD Short Film created, produced and directed by Asian American actress Jackie Dallas. Since then, PROUD (www.proudshortfilm.asia) has been chosen to be screened at numerous film festivals both in the U.S. and internationally. It is also the proud recipient of “Best Short Film” award from the Independent Talents Film Festival. Check out our recent interview with Jackie Dallas to find out more about her journey and the Proud Short Film.
