The Celebration of 19th Universe Multicultural Film Festival in Los Angeles this April
Los Angeles, CA (April 7th, 2022) – With the Southern California coast enjoying another sunny spring, the 19th Universe Multicultural Film Festival will be held this April in Los Angeles. This is the first time that the UMFF can be revived after two years of COVID-19 challenges. National cultures are the common cultural treasure of all mankind and the whole world. The development of social trends makes cultural styles tend to be the same, but what really fills our hearts with confidence and pride is the national culture of each nation. Since its inception, after 18 editions of ups and downs, the Universe Multicultural Film Festival aspires to serve as a stage, a window, and a bridge between cultures to help more and more national cultural beauty to the world through the carrier of film. At the same time, with the unique advantage of being in Hollywood, the heart of the world film industry, the Universe Multicultural Film Festival also hopes to provide the most high-end, professional, and incomparable top platform for people from all over the world who have film dreams through the three-day festival events.
The whole process of the UMFF, from receiving and selecting films, to inviting Hollywood professional judges to comment on the films, as well as the follow-up red carpet and the award ceremony, is in accordance with the standards of the world-class film festival. This year, we have been selected for 54 projects from 18 countries, including feature films, short films, screenplays, student works, animation, music videos, and so on. “Let every participant can see their dreams come true here.” is the most fundamental purpose of the Universe Multicultural Film Festival. A film brings together the painstaking efforts and sweat of countless people from conception, screenwriting, project establishment to completion. The Universe Multicultural Film Festival is eager to help more and more filmmakers with a strong sense of national responsibility to have the opportunity to show their talents and to communicate professionally with world-class international filmmakers. This is also the difference between the Universe Multicultural Film Festival and other film festivals. We welcome more national cultural communicators from all over the world to show their national beauty to the world through the Universe Multicultural Film Festival.
With the continuous improvement of the epidemic situation in the United States and around the world, this year’s Universe Multicultural Film Festival will not only be held in April as scheduled but will also resume most of the festival processes. Due to travel restrictions related to the epidemic, many international filmmakers are unable to attend the festival, so the process of this year’s film festival has also been adjusted accordingly. But after two years of waiting, it is still thrilling to return to the festival. The general framework and traditions of the festival will be preserved, and friends will still have the opportunity to walk on the red carpet of the Universe Multicultural Film Festival, leaving a glorious moment of 2022. We also warmly welcome filmmakers in the United States and those who have the conditions to come to celebrate this fantastic film event with us.

All the filmmakers and crew members who have been selected for the Universe Multicultural Film Festival, including fans who love films, can come and participate in various professional seminars and screenings. Each selected film project will receive two all-event passes provided by the Universe Multicultural Film Festival, which is a sign and symbol of true recognition from the industry.
Meanwhile, during the festival, we will also select the Maeya Culture Ambassador of 2022. The selection is open to all candidates from the public. The selected ambassadors will represent Maeya Group and the Universe Multicultural Film Festival brand to participate in various activities with film, culture, and ethnic-themed events worldwide in the coming year.
