In All by Richard Gonzales

The Chinese American Film Festival (CAFF) and Chinese American TV Festival (CATF) are currently accepting feature and short film submissions for the 14th Annual CAFF.  The early bird deadline has no submission fee and is ongoing but ends June 12th and submissions overall end on September 15th.

Chinese American Film Festival (CAFF) was founded in 2005 by EDI Media Inc. (USA). CAFF is based in Los Angeles and the goal is to connect the U.S. and China film markets and it is the only film festival that is recognized by China’s and the U.S. governments. Each year, the festival holds panel conversations that include guests from China and the U.S., a showcase, and two award ceremonies. Hundreds of top box office films from U.S. and China participate in CAFF!
