VAFF’s AIM³ Summit
VAFF is taking AIM at Hollywood! Since the Oscars 2016, a.k.a. the 88th Academy Awards, there has been an outpouring of indignation online over the lack of diversity in the casts of Hollywood movies and network television. In particular, Asian actors have lost ground with the increase of Caucasian actors being cast for the roles of Asian characters. This panel will bring these issues forward to a wide group of producers, actors, online media personalities, directors, filmmakers, and involved community members to identify the actions we can all take to contribute to this movement.
VAFF seeks to continue the work of social commentaries such as the #StarringJohnCho campaign, while simultaneously educating Hollywood studios that the Asian Canadian/American population is enormous in economic potential.
THIS SATURDAY Nov 5TH, 12:15PM
Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinemas
