Press Launch Party and VAFF Countdown Kick Off

The Pink Elephant Thai, October 16th



New brochures, local media and talented filmmakers were on hand at the VAFF Press Launch and Film Festival Countdown last Thursday. The bright lights from film crews shone from the corners of the room as Karen Lam, Linda Dong, Joella Cabalu, and other filmmakers had a chance to be interviewed on the films screening at VAFF and their journey as filmmakers.

The (pink!) modern décor of our venue perfectly complimented our edgy visual campaign What’s Your Perspective? that urges Vancouver audiences to reflect on how they view the world. Whether it’s a horror film from Singapore, a road trip movie set in India, or the new genre of web series that’s transforming the way filmmakers create and distribute their work, VAFF’s 18th year expands our understanding of contemporary Asian film.

But aside from such philosophical contemplations, the launch party was also a great time to get your picture taken with celebrity filmmakers, network with movers and shakers in the arts and culture scene, and croon a song or two with the live band karaoke.

Make sure to catch this year’s remarkable films and to budget some time to make an appearance at an after-party too. All the details can be found at
