New films by Vietnamese directors—both from Vietnam and diaspora populations in countries around the world—will be shown at the sixth Vietnamese International Film Festival at various venues in Orange County April 4–7 and April 12–14. A number of films will also be shown at the UCLA campus on April 11, see the roster here.

The UCLA screenings will be held  in Room 132 of the Neuroscience Research Building at 635 Charles E. Young Drive South; use Parking Lot 9. 

Since 2003, the festival has been a joint collaboration of the UCLA student group and non-profit organization, Vietnamese Language & Culture (VNLC) and the Vietnamese American Arts & Letters Association (VAALA) of Santa Ana, CA. UCLA student John Pham is co-director of both the VNLC and the film festival this year. Not only does the student group participate in the planning and execution of the festival, VNLC also provides student volunteers for festival screenings on campus.
