To be eligible for an official #GoldOpen, projects must meet at least one of the following criteria: the film has at least one authentically-portrayed Asian Lead and/or an Asian Director who has helmed a film that’s critical to another multicultural community.
In addition, Films must be feature-length and be distributed by a traditional theatrical exhibitor for a minimum of one month. #GoldOpen aspires to support other artistic formats in the future. The #GoldOpen Advisory Council and core community determine the volume of support provided to each project.
Given lockdowns around the world, we temporarily welcome full length or full series projects that have at last one Asian lead and are streaming on a major platform including Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Apple TV, Disney+, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch. A “#GoldOpen” for these projects means top-trending placement on its hosting platform or online.
