About the Vancouver Asian Film Festival
The Vancouver Asian Film Festival Society (VAFF) is a not-for-profit organization that celebrates diversity in film by providing a forum for independent Canadian and American Asian filmmakers to showcase their work to Asian and non-Asian audiences in Vancouver. The longest running Asian film festival in Canada, it was founded by independent filmmaker and writerBarbara K. Lee in 1995 and debuted in September 1997. VAFF is entirely organized and produced by a group of dedicated volunteers, and is made possible through support from community partnerships and generous financial support from corporate sponsors, public funders and private donors. Organizers are expecting close to 4,000 audience members over the four day festival.
