HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Hollywood Global Film Festival Founder Maryanne Lai and celebrity guests will announce its lineup of official films in competition for its annual film festival on Sunday August 29, 2021 at 5 p.m. at the Tong Tak House located at 1271 South Baldwin Avenue in Arcadia California. As a minority Chinese American producer and business woman in Hollywood, Lai’s vision is to create diversity, inclusion and cooperation through entertainment. According to Lai, “Hollywood touches our soul, with its characters that move us emotionally. The music we hear influences us spiritually, and has inspired us into taking action in art, culture and films that moves us physically.”
Submissions to the Hollywood Global Film Festival are a chronicle and reflection of the times in which we live.”
This year’s film festival competition for the 2021 Hollywood Global Film Festival saw submissions from five continents with more than 50 countries including Brazil, Belgium, China, Egypt, France, Germany, Malawi, India, Italy, Republic of Korea, Russian Federation, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, Mexico, and Canada are just a few.
