The Second Annual Los Angeles Chinese Film Festival (LACFF) will take place in Los Angeles at the Downtown Independent from November 1st - 4th. The Los Angeles Chinese Film Festival aims to uncover and promote excellence in Chinese language and culture-focused films, and to foster cultural exchange through screenings and other entertainment related activities. With this in mind, the programming committee has curated 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.
