Date for Viet Film Fest 2021 Free Virtual Launch Party is Set

The Vietnamese American Arts and Letters Association (VAALA) is hosting a free virtual launch party for the Viet Film Fest 2021 on Thursday, September 23. The evening will include the debut of the highly anticipated Viet Film Fest 2021 festival trailer, and the announcement of all the official curated film sets as well as nominations for Best Feature Film, Best Short Film, Best Actor, and Best Actress. The event, which celebrates Vietnamese voices and stories in cinema, will be hosted by The Song Collective co-founder Carolina Do, with performances by rapper Suboi, Nodey, Avin Lu, and Thang Dao. 

Those in attendance may purchase early-bird All-Access Badges at a discounted price at the launch party. 

2021 marks the 12th edition of Viet Film Fest, which will be offered virtually from October 15-30 through an online streaming platform in a movies-on-demand environment. There will also be socially-distanced, limited capacity in-person screenings for select features (pending public health/safety directives). The virtual return of Viet Film Fest provides increased, accessible opportunities for storytellers and audiences alike to experience independent artistic work while connecting with one another from the comforts of home.
