The Los Angeles Chinese Film Festival is the only festival in LA to focus on independent Chinese culture and heritage films, and aims to foster cultural exchange through screenings and other entertainment related activities.
With this in mind, every year, LACFF curates a collection of high-quality original films from around the world, with an emphasis on works produced by the Chinese language-speaking/heritage community. Films with cast or crew from these groups, or featuring the culture of these groups in a meaningful way, are eligible for festival submissions. LACFF extends a special welcome to newcomers and independent filmmakers, and serves as a platform for independent Chinese cinema.
The LACFF is organized by Chinese in Entertainment (CIE), a Los Angeles-based non-profit organization that supports Chinese talent and culture in entertainment and the arts.
