The mission of Viet Film Fest is to celebrate Vietnamese stories and voices in cinema.

Viet Film Fest was created in 2003 by the Vietnamese American Arts & Letters Association (VAALA). As the largest international Vietnamese film festival of its kind in the world, Viet Film Fest showcases the best creative work by and about Vietnamese people. Through the universal language of film, Viet Film Fest brings together multiple perspectives to expand the scope and horizons of Vietnamese cinema.

Our award-winning films have been screened in numerous cities and countries. For over a decade, the festival has attracted thousands of national and international attention for its stunning showcase of shorts and features submitted from all over the world. As the hub of the Vietnamese movie industry, the festival hosts networking opportunities with prominent directors, media experts, and producers, including Tran Anh Hung (The Scent of Green Papaya), Tony Bui (Three Seasons), Ham Tran (Journey from the Fall), Victor Vu (Yellow Flowers on the Green Grass), Ngo Thanh Van (Furie), and Charlie Nguyen (My Mr. Wife).

Viet Film Fest is looking for creative works from Vietnamese filmmakers and/or those that speak to the Vietnamese experience for our 2022 film festival to be held on October 1-15, 2022. Due to the pandemic and the popularity of streaming platforms, VFF 2021 will be hosted online as well as some indoor theater screenings (pending the public health/safety situation in October). Entry forms can be filled out online at www.vietfilmfest.com. The submission deadline is April 29, 2022 (Early Bird March 18th, 2022).
