photo of Arthur DongHollywood Chinese,” Arthur Dong’s California Documentary Project film about Chinese in American feature films, captured the Best Documentary Award at the recent Golden Horse Awards, often referred to as Asia’s Chinese Oscars. “My experience at the Golden Horse events was extraordinary,” Dong said. “To begin with, to be the first documentary ever selected to open the festival was a strong message to Asia and Chinese-speaking audiences that documentaries are a genre that’s not only important but also entertaining. And then, for jurors to recognize a Chinese American production with an award for films traditionally from Asia was an honor that I’m personally proud of — I’ve known about the Golden Horse since I was a kid growing up in San Francisco’s Chinatown and never thought I’d actually receive one myself!”

“Hollywood Chinese” is scheduled for theatrical release in the spring of 2008.
