Still raining? No biggie. The fun has moved inside.

Vancouver Asian Film Festival 2011 Starts November 3

Back for its 15th year, the annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival (VAFF) opens this Thursday, November 3. A showcase for independent North American Asian filmmakers, VAFF is a rare opportunity to see a wide-range of works—from dramas and comedies to documentaries—that, while incredibly diverse, share one thing in common: an Asian-North American point-of-view that is often overlooked in mainstream cinema.

Highlights of the 2011 VAFF include the comedy Almost Perfect, starring X-Men 2‘s Kelly Hu and Hong Kong star Edison Chen, the documentary Big In Bollywood, which follows the journey of Indo-American actor Omi Vaidya from Hollywood unknown to Bollywood celebrity, and the drama Ashes, featuring Ajay Naidu, Faran Tahir and Piper Perabo.
