Festival Submission Guidelines for the
17th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival
November 7 – 10, 2013
The Vancouver Asian Film Festival (VAFF) is Canada’s oldest festival with a focus on exhibiting films and videos by North American artists of Asian heritage. Since its beginnings in 1995 and incorporation in spring 1997, VAFF has remained committed to supporting both emerging talent and established filmmakers. VAFF is a not-for-profit film festival society that aims to celebrate diversity in film by providing a forum for independent Asian-Canadian and Asian-American filmmakers to showcase their work to Asian and non-Asian audiences in Vancouver. The festival endeavours to represent the often-ignored North American Asians caught between two cultures and provides a cultural bridge among Asian communities and between Asian and non-Asian communities in Metro Vancouver.
