We are proud to announce the 2nd year of our “We Heart” short film project in celebration of the 90th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and Canada. VAFF is honoured to be partnering with the 在バンクーバー日本国総領事館 / Consulate General of Japan in Vancouver and The Japan Foundation, Toronto for this project.
To kick off the We Heart Canada + Japan 90 short film campaign project; we hosted a SWIPE RIGHT matchmaking event on July 12, 2018 at SFU Harbour Centre. This short film project is aimed at building awareness of this landmark year across Canada. Four non-profit organizations and four filmmakers will be funded between August and October 2018 with the short films produced premiering at the 22nd Vancouver Asian Film Festival from Nov 1-4, 2018. In addition, one of the short films will be selected and showcased across multiple locations of the Consulate of Japan in Canada in 2019.
