The 19th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival will take place from November 5 – 8, 2015 at Cineplex Odeon International  Village Cinemas, (88 West Pender Street, Vancouver) located in Vancouver’s historic Chinatown  neighbourhood.

VAFF 2015 asks, “What’s Your Role [in your community]?” with a lineup that invites us to examine the complications within the search for personal and cultural identity. The festival’s nine film programs include 38 feature-length and short films of all genres, with English dialogue or English subtitles, from the Asian diaspora—including a world premiere, 4 North American premieres and 13 Canadian premieres. An additional 9 films are Vancouver premieres. Twenty filmmakers, from Canada and internationally, are expected to attend. We anticipate close to 4,000 audience and industry members over the four-day festival.

The entire festival program lineup and advance tickets & VIP passes are on sale now.
