The former New Asia Film Festival is expanding from an Asia-focused film event into a community celebration of international film and media arts. Audiences will be able to experience full length features in a unique atmosphere such as one of the festival’s new programs: Dim Sum Movie and Cinema Café.
Other festival highlights includes Multimedia Installations and Projections in unusual locations, including a pair of shipping containers on the Richmond Cultural Centre plaza, the Canada Line and the lobby and woods outside of the Cultural Centre. Other special events screenings will also include a pairing of multimedia arts with a traditional Chinese tea ceremony. A special outdoor screening will officially open the festival on July 22 with live DJ and musical performances.
Stay tuned! New Festival website and details of the festival program will be launched at the end of May.
