Due April 30th, 2019 - Joan Chen, actress, and director, and former member of the Board of Directors of 1990 Institute was one of the creators of the 1990 Video Contest (formerly, Youth Voices on China). 1990 Institute is extremely grateful for Joan Chen’s creative energies and support behind this program.

What’s in Your Wok? is the theme of 1990 Institute’s current 1990 Video Contest. Food is not just what you eat, but also a reflection of the culture and people of its origin. The 1990 Institute Video Contest asks you to look around, in your navel and in your fridge, to figure out what place Chinese food has in your life and why.

Food is the universal unifier, and there is no doubt that the gathering, creation, and sharing of food plays a role in all of our lives. You may decide that the answer to What’s in Your Wok? is something that has cultural significance: did you know that there are eight major culinary traditions in China? Perhaps you or your family have fond memories of a particular dish from one of these cuisines. Your video could capture a family member or friend discussing his or her traditions around Chinese food. Or your video may be a reflection of what you or someone you know thinks about Chinese culture and why that person likes or doesn’t like Chinese food. Humor can be a wonderful ingredient. You could make a video of how you or a relative prepare a dish. Or take a walk in a Chinatown near you to showcase the latest in street food. Who knows? Your video could even end up being shown at a film festival. There are a zillion potential subjects for this 1990 Institute Video Contest – let your imagination be your guide!

Entries should be a maximum of 5 minutes in length.
