VAFF is pleased to celebrate its 2018 Season and the 22nd Annual Festival celebration of Asian diaspora and diversity in film, set for November 1-4, 2018.
The VAFF 2018 theme of INFUSIAN shines a spotlight upon the diverse artists, agitators, thinkers, and innovators who shape the living experience of contemporary Canadians and the array of influences that inform their work. INFUSIAN is an act of creation that helps form an endlessly complex, rich and vigorous society: it tells the stories of individuals and communities blending together old and new, East and West, classic and cutting-edge, myriad ways of living and thinking that draw out the strengths and unique flavours from many different ingredients. It also reflects the undeniable hybridity of modern Canada, with multiple heritages, histories, and cultures both within and outside of the Asian diaspora coming together in countless combinations.
The Open Call for submissions to the 2018 festival began on March 15th and ran until the end of May, and resulted in a historic number of submissions for the festival.
The 2018 Season has included seasonal screenings such as the free public National Canadian Film Day screening of A Time to Swim on April 18, 2018 co-presented with explorASIAN, and in partnership with Reel Canada, H.R.MacMillan Space Centre, and the Museum of Vancouver, the return of our summer short filmmaking contest, the Mighty Asian Moviemaking Marathon (MAMM) for its 13th year which has seen the most number of applications ever and the most well-attended gala screening ever, various partnered industry events, a first-ever Chinatown Movie Night & Culture Fair co-presented with Chinatown Today with a packed free outdoor screening of locally-filmed Meditation Park, and our 22nd Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival November 1-4, 2018 at the Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinemas, and much more.
