2020 Festival Theme – What’s your 20?
The annual theme for this year is “What’s Your 20?”, the radio code adopted and widely used in the film industry that means “where are you?” or “what’s your location?”. In the year 2020, we play on the numbers to pose this question, which can be interpreted physically, intellectually and philosophically. VAFF will challenge filmmakers to tell us where they are at, and what they see from that vantage point, especially amidst the on-going global crisis and social movement. No one could have predicted the unprecedented global transformation this year would bring. Storytellers of Asian heritage have felt the monumental impact of global change from artistic achievements on the world stage to the recent pandemic crisis to racial injustice, and have much to reflect on.
