Despite the heat of Houston summer, the four-day festival attracted hundreds of fans, supporters, as well as movie lovers in the area. The community was well served with different kinds of films from documentary to story; and was also touch with different emotions – humor, happiness, sympathy, compassion and admiration… Those selected films helped addressing certain issues in our society. For example, A Village called Versailles (directed by S. Leo Chiang) was an incredible story of a little-known, tight-knit community fighting to regain justice and also not to lose their homes again. Or Post-Racial (directed by Tim Tsai) was a short pressing on the matter of racial stereotypes. There’re also stories about the gap between generations, the disadvantage of being minority, the pursue of American Dream, and so much more.

 The film festival was closed with an Art Night showcasing performances of young and talented local artists in Houston. Everyone coming to the event was entertained greatly and very much appreciated OCA’s effort of putting everything together for the good of the community. As a community’s partner, we cannot wait for what’s coming at next year’s film festival.
