DC Chinese Film Festival (or DCCFF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to discovering outstanding Chinese cinema around the world and to encouraging cultural diversity through films. The 3rd DC Chinese Film Festival is scheduled to take place in Washington D.C. September 19-25, 2016. This year the festival committee is putting together a richer and more diverse program for participants and audiences.
The DC Chinese Film Festival (DCCFF) was founded by Mr. Yibin Cai in 2011, and since then has been running under the leadership of a group of young film enthusiasts from China and the US. Within the DCCFF Team are professionals working in film, media and communications, as well as students studying at top film schools. DCCFF believes that cinema can be a powerful universal language and a form of communication to encourage cultural diversity. To this end, the Festival has worked tirelessly to discover talented Chinese-speaking filmmakers, films in Chinese, and/or films about Chinese-speaking cultures. In an effort to bring together these filmmakers and other talents in the film market, DCCFF hopes to create an international platform for the creative minds behind films, as well as production and distribution companies from both China and the U.S.
