It’s a VAFF FAMILY
Walid El Atrache
He brings to Vancouver Asian Film Festival strong political acumen and a wide network of government and media contacts in BC thanks to more than 15 years of industry experience, including ten years in government and stakeholder relations.
Vincent grew up on a steady diet of 80s and 90s HK films and to him, Stephen Chow will always be the king of comedy, Jet Li IS Wong Fei Hung and Johnnie To’s Milkyway Image films are the epitome of cool, with Election and Election 2 being one of his favorite films of all time.
He also loves improv and tries to live life by Upright Citizen’s Brigade’s school motto which is “Don’t Think”. It’s not very practical professionally.
He sees the importance of proper representation in Hollywood and wanted to make a difference and this led him to VAFF.

Han Bin Park
PROJECT CREATIVE PRODUCER
Having competed in MAMM for the past 4 years, I have nothing but gratitude for this competition and the people behind it. Joining the MAMM Producing Team this year allows me to give back to this community that has given me so much – I’m thrilled to get it all going!
In 2021 experiencing MAMM with Moheb and seeing the diversity in this competition and how much was given to us throughout the experience made me feel like I want to give back and support through MAMM/VAFF to the next generation of filmmakers and help foster new talent in our film community as well.
