VAFF is pleased to celebrate its 2020 Season of year-round events and the 24th annual festival celebration of Asian diaspora and diversity in film, set for November 5-8, 2020.

In June, we will kick off our 15th annual Mighty Asian Moviemaking Marathon (MAMM15) summer short film competition, which begins with the open call for team applications to participate in the competition. During open call, #MAMM15 will feature the third annual Diversity in Filmmaking panel day (also part of our VAFF Industry Insight Panel Series) which will take place for the first time in both Vancouver and Victoria, BC! The selected teams for MAMM15 will take part in our MAMMentorships program during the month of July and receive specialized workshops from industry professionals and mentors. All of this builds up to the MAMM15 Gala Screening and Awards Presentation August 29th, 2020 at the Vancouver Playhouse Theatre.
