2020 Festival Theme – What’s your 20?
We are pleased to announce the countdown to its much anticipated 24th annual celebration of diversity in film and the Asian diaspora, brought to you virtually (#VAFFVIRTUAL) from October 31 to November 8, 2020 in the comfort of your home, with a few surprises in store. This year’s festival will run for twice as long as past festivals, allowing us to bring you more exciting content than ever before. The entire program schedule and tickets is available October 5 till November 8, 2020 (9:00 pm) PST.
We are pleased to announce that this year’s theme is “What’s Your 20?”, the radio code 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. No one could have predicted the unprecedented global transformation that 2020 would bring. This year, we zoom in on the filmmaker’s psyche, and explore the monumental impact of global change on storytellers of Asian heritage, and the issues that matter to them.
We are delighted to have Jenny Lee-Gilmore, Moheb Jindran and Nikki Chohan, three very talented Asian-Canadian actors, as the 24th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival Brand Ambassador. Through film, they unveil their perspectives on the ongoing global crisis and social movements and help us answer the question, “What’s Your 20?”
