The foundation set up by the mother of slain hip hop icon Tupac Shakur (2Pac), ‘The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation’ (TASF) is seeking innovative filmmakers from around the world to submit their work for inclusion in the Tupac Amaru Shakur Film Festival.

This year's festival is scheduled to take place at the arts center built in the name of the fallen hip hop icon, (2Pac), on November 10, 2007 at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts in Atlanta, Georgia. The event will start at 2:00PM.

The opening event garnered global interest culminating with a rapturous crowd viewing the documentary "The Hip Hop Project." Actor Bruce Willis and actress/rapper and hip hop legend Queen Latifah joined forces to bring this film to the big screen. "We are looking to grow this annual event and create a forum for filmmakers of all ages to showcase their work," said the mother of fallen hip hop icon Tupac (2Pac), Afeni Shakur; President and Founder of TASF.

For consideration, applicants (either individually or in a group) are invited to submit their work. A jury of established professionals will review and judge the entries and select one film to be screened in the "Selective Choice" film category. The winning filmmaker or team will have the unique opportunity to speak to the audience at the Tupac Center following the screening.
