The programs will include a variety of special events and panel discussions featuring directors, producers, writers and actors. CTFF will provide a creative forum for emerging filmmakers. CTFF offers the opportunity for student early-career filmmakers, and seasoned filmmakers to showcase their talent and gain exposure.
One of the key purposes of Cambodian Town Film Festival (CTTF) is to highlight the diversity of the Cambodian experience through the art of filmmaking. By specifically featuring films that deal with Cambodian social political conflicts, traditions, challenges and characters, the Festival will deepen Cambodian values and encourage new dialogue on a global scale. This year, the festival will also aim to showcase an international selection of narrative features, documentaries, short films, student films, animated films from (not just Cambodia), but from around the world, bringing stories to Cambodia Town, Long Beach, California.
A vibrant and active community, Long Beach’s Cambodia Town has become the center for Khmer culture, and more than 20,000 visitors attend the Cambodian New Year celebration each year. Understanding that Cambodia Town is a Khmer hub for culture and commerce, CTFF has begun planning the annual Cambodia Town Film Festival, slated to take place in the Fall of 2014. Given that Cambodian Americans are among the fastest-growing populations in the United States, and with increased attention paid to Khmer culture on the world stage, this festival is indeed timely. The types of work featured at the festival-which involve stories about family, migration, justice, and the human condition-speak to the power of film to reach and inspire multiple audiences. This festival powerfully speaks to the endurance and resurgence of Cambodian culture.
Thank you for your interest in Cambodia Town Film Festival. The reason why we've been able to sustain this successful festival for 4 years is because of you, the sponsors! Become part of something great. To the right, are our top level sponsorship categories!

In April 2006, a small group of friends wanted to celebrate Cambodian New Year that was unique and exclusive to Khmer culture for one night… thus the Sarong Party was born. The idea was to celebrate Cambodian culture in a safe and fun environment with friends and family. Ten years later, it has evolved into the largest cultural theme party in Cambodia Town, Long Beach. Thousands have attended from all over the world and has now set threads in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. The Cambodian renaissance is in full throttle. Join us in celebration to experience the movement of a cultural rebirth as we set course for another 10 years and beyond!
It’s on like the Mekong! Cambodia Town Film Festival proudly presents the “The Khmers of Comedy.” The first ever all Cambodian-American stand up comedy show, Live in Long Beach, CA.
