2021 Film Festival
VAFF celebrates its 25th edition this year from November 4 to 14, with a bigger and better festival to commemorate this milestone year. For the first time ever, VAFF is going to be a hybrid affair taking place over 11 days and counting. The extended festival kicks off with 4 days of VAFF In-Theatre events (November 4-7), followed by 6 days of VAFF On-Demand programs (November 8-13), before one final live program and the festival’s closing awards ceremony on November 14. The eleven-day celebration will highlight an array of unique and outstanding talent, with both emerging and established Asian Canadian and Asian American writers, producers, and directors showcasing their latest work. Stay tuned for full details of the entire program, to be announced during the week of October 4, 2021.
The theme of “Past, Present & Possibilities” is brought to life by VAFF25’s “Feel the Vibe-Asian” campaign
The theme of this year’s VAFF is “Past, Present & Possibilities,” as we reflect on the festival’s illustrious achievements in these 25 years, celebrate how far we’ve come in elevating the profile of Asian Canadians in cinema, and look to the future with a mission to keep spreading a message of inclusivity and help take Asian filmmaking to new heights. To this end, the theme of “Past, Present & Possibilities” is at the essence of VAFF25’s “Feel the Vibe-Asian” campaign. Featuring a multitude of Asian Canadian talent, “Feel the Vibe-Asian” carries a message of originality, boldness, and vitality, with a spirit of poise and grace. We are delighted to have Curtis Lum, Nhi Do, Hiro Kanagawa three very talented Asian-Canadian actors, as the 25th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival Brand Ambassador.
