Mandate:

Otafest is a film festival that seeks to move beyond the traditional boundaries of the genre, providing the public with an East Asian cultural media festival. The goal of Otafest is to highlight the intricate relationship between opposites, embodied in the Asian concepts of Yin and Yang. The logo of the festival is designed to represent the symbiosis of Yin and Yang, life and death, black and white, past and present, East and West. We hope that by attending Otafest the public will be as much educated as they are entertained, and may leave with a greater understanding of East Asian culture.

All ages welcome!
