  • New this year, is the VAFF Industry Insight Seminar Series: panel topics include how independent filmmakers can take advantage of Vancouver’s rapid evolution into a post production hub, and how to capitalize on emerging opportunities for international distribution/co-production.

  • VAFF 19 asks, “What’s Your Role [in your Community here]?” with a lineup that invites us to examine the complications within the search for personal and cultural identity.
