Next Exit, Cambodia Town presented by Cambodia Town Film Festival

A vibrant and active community, Long Beach’s Cambodia Town has become the center for Khmer culture, and more than 30,000 visitors attend the Cambodian New Year celebration each year. Understanding that Cambodia Town is a Khmer hub for culture and commerce, Cambodia Town Film Festival presents these films which involve stories about family, migration, justice, and the human condition. These projects speak to the power of film to reach and inspire multiple audiences.

Cambodia Town Film Festival highlights 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 deepens Cambodian values, encourages new dialogue on a global scale, and powerfully speaks to the endurance and resurgence of Cambodian culture.

Members of Khmer Girls in Action's 2007 Summer Youth Media Workshop put pen and market to paper to produce a series of one-minute short stories about things that are important to them: being heard and understood, gossiping about crushes, and the disparity between comfort and homelessness. What emerges is a fascinating collection of stories that offers a gaze into the world of young women of color.
