18th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival (VAFF)


18th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival (VAFF)

"What's Your Perspective?"

The opening film for VAFF 2014 is the Canadian premiere of VAFF alumnus director Dave Boyle's MAN FROM RENO, an engrossing neo-noir thriller set in the back streets of San Francisco.

EVANGELINE from local director and Women in Film & Television award recipient Karen Lam promises to be a hit with horror-genre fans and local cinephiles alike, as will AFTERIMAGES: FIVE HORROR FILMS FROM HELL by Singapore-based director Tony Kern (co-presented by the Vancouver Singpore Film Festival).

Other films to note are the Canadian premiere of M CREAM, a college road movie from Delhi to the Himalayan foothills about the search for a mythical type of hash, from Indian indie director Agneya Singh; the World Premiere of THE SEARCH FOR GENERAL TSO, a revealing documentary of this ubiquitous Chinese-North American food and culture; the Canadian premiere of A PICTURE OF YOU, our Centrepiece Presentation; a web shorts program and panel featuring local Asian Canadian as well as Asian American web producers; and a retrospective of 18 years of short works by Asian and Asian Canadian animators.

VAFF 2014 closes with A LEADING MAN, a pointed dramedy about a blacklisted Asian American actor who fights to survive in LA by sleeping his way to the top - a theme that finds plenty of resonance in Vancouver's own film and television industry.
