- Round 13
Tich Tourch Festival
Tich Tourch is a Khmer film and arts festival slated to begin in Spring 2020. The festival will uplift the many different talents and crafts of the Khmer diasporic community, serving as a site at which new and fluid connections are made. Many social gatherings for the Khmer community in Oakland center religious and traditional ceremony; though this is abundantly important in honoring and preserving of Khmer culture, additional avenues of cultural expression must also be forged. It is at the meeting place of cultural tradition and creative mobility that narratives for the current Khmer diasporic experiences can be affirmed.
