This Summer, in support of the Mighty Asian Moviemaking Marathon competition, we are bringing back our VAFF Industry Insight Panel Series event, “Diversity in Filmmaking Day” happening on Sunday June 23, 2019 from 10:30am-5pm in the Joyce Walley Room at the Museum of Vancouver.
Come spend the day with us to explore how people of colour are impacting various aspects of filmmaking and how others can do so as well. Our Creative Producers Mayumi Yoshida and Nach Dudsdeemaytha, as well as a guest moderator Joella Cabalu and Lee Shorten will lead 4 panel discussions in about different areas of film development and production, and one special panel with MAMM alumni. The day will be geared toward providing insight and insider perspectives for aspiring and current filmmakers of diverse backgrounds, and those in the industry who aim to work with diverse representation both in front of and behind the camera.
Following the event, we invite you to join us for our Industry Mix & Mingle at Bimini Public House at 4th and Maple, starting 5:30pm. Continue the discussion, socialize, and network with attendees, panelists and VAFF team members.
