Vancouver Asian Film Festival happening this weekend.

Vancouver Asian Film Festival happening this weekend.

Vancouver Asian Film Festival started on Thursday.  I was sorry to miss the opening gala, as I have attended on many occasions in the past.  It's just a very busy week!

Highlights at this year's festival included director Justin Lin – director of the Sundance hit film BETTER LUCK TOMMORROW and the Hollywood action hit THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT. In 1997,

Justin attended the 1st VAFF along with Quentin Lee with their film SHOPPING FOR FANGS. On Opening Night, Justin returns to the 11th VAFF to screen FINISHING THE GAME,
a comedy about producers attempting to complete Bruce Lee’s unfinished
final film. Also screening will be Anson Ho’s documentary BUILDING A JOURNEY, which follows Justin and his crew behind the scenes. Justin will also speak to VAFF audiences in the special program IN THE DIRECTOR’S CHAIR WITH JUSTIN LIN,
sharing his journey from indie filmmaker to Hollywood success and on
being an Asian-American filmmaking pioneer. In attendance will be actor
Roger Fan, star of FINISHING THE GAME and many of Justin’s films.
