This is a night to celebrate the inaugural competition created to uncover the extraordinary and unique lives of regular Asians living in Canada.  Join filmmakers and judges alike to listen to the top 3 finalists of the 100 Stories Challenge make their pitch to decide who is the best storyteller and most deserving of the grand prize of $1,000.

What is the 100 Stories Challenge?

The 100 Stories Challenge aims to collect at least 100 stories that uncover the extraordinary lives of regular Asians in Canada. Maybe your grandparents had a unique voyage to Canada, or your auntie built the first Asian restaurant in her rural town. Or maybe your parents have an adorable story around how they met or did your uncle created a special hot sauce with unique Asian flavours. Or you could even uncover your great uncles’ history as a secret war hero that saved played an integral role in WWII. We want to hear all of these stories and more!

VAFF is dedicated to creating more opportunities to share Asian Canadian stories through film and we hope that this particular challenge will encourage inter-generational dialogue and connections. We hope that by the end of this Challenge we will have collected more than 100 stories documenting the legacy of Asians in Canada.
