Our City Festival

Our City Festival is Cambodia’s first and only public festival to bring together creatives from Cambodian cities to focus on urbanism and it’s influences on contemporary culture. OCF activates Cambodia’s urban environments through art, architecture and ideas that is characterized by a spirit of accessibility, learning and innovation for all.

In 2014, OCF's 6th edition took place over ten days in Phnom Penh, followed by a 3 day city focus on Siem Reap and Battambang.

Initiated in 2008 by Java Arts, Our City Festival acknowledges Cambodian cities accelerated urban changes and its intersection with the surge of activity in contemporary arts. Presenting art and architecture themed exhibitions, events, performances, screenings, educational talks and tours and workshops, OCF examines Cambodia’s present, remembers its past and envisions its future through a creative vision.

In the past five years, it has operated as a creative and critical exploration of the city’s urban trajectory whilst seeking to reflect on change and document them through artistic response and expression.

It is a platform for Cambodian creatives to celebrate their own voice, create their own vision, ignite their imaginations and be exposed to a diverse and engaging audience.
