    The Vancouver Asian Film Festival Society (VAFF) is a not-for-profit organization that provides a forum for independent North American Asian filmmakers to showcase their work to both Asian and non-Asian audiences.

    The aim of VAFF is to foster an understanding and appreciation of today’s independent North American Asian filmmakers, while providing a springboard to larger film festivals. The society endeavours to represent the often ignored North American Asians caught between two cultures. The Vancouver Asian Film Festival Society will provide a cultural bridge between the Asian and non-Asian communities as well as the Asian communities themselves.

    Outdoor recreation sites collide with European interiors in Val Nelson’s (88)  forthcoming solo exhibition, My Divided Attention. Using the notion of the travel destination as a metaphor for the anxieties, yearnings, and contradictions of contemporary life, her new paintings address the dissonance between a general unease for the future and an apparent optimism as evidenced by the continued global drive toward material excess.

    Artist and author Douglas Coupland (84) has been selected by the Fox family to design the new memorial for local hometown hero Terry Fox.

    The new memorial will replace the existing one near the Robson Street entrance to BC Place.

    In 1980, with one leg having been amputated due to cancer, Fox embarked on a cross-Canada Marathon of Hope to raise money and awareness for cancer research.  Though he utlimately succumbed to the disease, his efforts resulted in an ongoing worldwide legacy. The annual Terry Fox Run, established in 1981, is now the world's largest one-day cancer fundraiser and over $500 million has been raised in his name.
