It also serves as a platform for international dialogue and collaboration in film education, film financing and film production.
Annually in November, the Film Festival holds separate events in Hollywood, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

More than 700 guests from the movie industry in the US, Europe and Asia are invited to attend the Opening Ceremony. Filmmakers from U.S, including representatives from the Major Studios meet with their contemporaries from China at the forum/meeting at The Directors Guild of America
For the past six years, it has been proven Chinese American Film Festival is a great channel of communication between China and U.S film industries.
