The Los Angeles Chinese Film Festival (LACFF) aims to uncover and promote excellent Chinese language and Chinese culture-focused films, and to foster cultural exchange through screenings and other activities.

With this mission in mind, the programming committee is dedicated to finding high-quality original films from all over the world, with an emphasis on work 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 second annual Los Angeles Chinese Film Festival will take place in Los Angeles at the Downtown Independent from November 1st -4th.  LACFF 2018 has stopped accepting submissions and will be announcing the finalists in October 2018.

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.
