VAFF 2015: Save the date!

Summer is finally here...which means we're only 4 months away from the 19th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival, taking place November 5-8, 2015 at Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinemas. We're busy putting together an exciting lineup of films which will showcase the theme of "community" - both locally and abroad. Stay tuned! 

Booze 'N Schmooze

Our Community Partner Raindance Vancouver organizes the "Booze 'N Schmooze" – a monthly mixer for indie filmmakers and film aficionados. On June 29th, starting at 7pm, they have a new location for this fun event - The Portside Pub in Gastown. VAFF has partnered with Raindance Vancouver for this month's event to celebrate the most accomplished indie filmmakers of Vancouver awarded in the first half of 2015 (who are not few) and together we're bringing the "Lip Sync Battle" to the Booze ‘N Schmooze! Polish your skills and rehearse your songs. We’ve got prizes for the best ones - see you there! 

Free admission for VAFF Members. Please RSVP at

Summer Screening Spectacular: "Everything Will Be"

Back by popular demand, VAFF will be screening Everything Will Be on July 29, 2015 at Vancity Theatre. Don’t miss this chance to watch this film on the big screen!  

This documentary, by VAFF alumna and Sundance award-winning director Julia Kwan, captures the fascinating transformation of Vancouver's Chinatown through the intimate perspectives of the neighbourhood’s residents, diverse merchants and new entrepreneurs, who offer their poignant reflections on change, memory and legacy.

Night and day, a neon sign—an art installation—that reads “EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT” looms over Chinatown. Everything is going to be alright. The big question is—for whom?
