Sick of the lack of diversity on the silver screen? Well this week, the Vancouver Asian Film Festival returns, embracing diversity and inclusion with today’s leading Asian filmmakers.
From November 3 to 6, the festival will take over Tinseltown’s International Village Cinemas and celebrate the vibrancy and creativity of Asians in film.
The festival will screen 35 features and shorts over four days, and also boasts more than 40 filmmakers and special guests in attendance.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of VAFF, and “Homecoming” is the central theme of the festival.
Featuring both local and international talent, VAFF’s roster includes important issues affecting the Asian diaspora.
AIM³ Summit stands for Asians in Movies + Media + Music, and champions increasing diversity and representation in mainstream media, in front of and behind, the camera.
And VAFF continues the diversity discussion at panels during the day, where speakers will share their own stories and experiences in the industry:
Where: Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinemas – 88 W Pender Street, Vancouver
When: From Thursday, November 3 to Sunday, November 6
Tickets: Available at VAFF Box Office or online, more information here; $8 matinees / $10 evening screenings
