It was fun and exciting to attend the opening screening night of “Vancouver Asian Film Festival”. VAFF has been around for 18 years to promote and reunite the Asian culture in Vancouver. This festival has been an influence to the community in Vancouver to share and celebrate the different Asian cultures of this city. “Each year VAFF attracts close to 4,000 audience members over its four-day festival and year round events. It also reaches many more through word of mouth, pre-festival events, and traditional and social media throughout the year.” 能参加“温哥华亚洲电影节”开幕展映夜,我感到即有趣又兴奋。该电影节已持续举办18年,旨在推动并团结亚洲文化。电影节在温哥华社区颇具影响,鼓励人们分享汇聚在这座城市内不同的亚洲文化,并为这样的海纳百川而欢庆。每年,电影节吸引了近4,000名观众云集于此,加入到为期四天的节日盛会和贯穿全年的活动。此外,通过口口相传,节前活动,以及传统媒体和社交媒体等形式,电影节已经为越来越多的人所熟知。 Image 06 This year, I was invited out to celebrate their 18th VAFF opening night at Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinema. 今年,我受邀前往Cineplex Odeon国际电影村庆祝第18届温哥华亚洲电影节拉开大幕。 Image 02 They featured a Canada/Japan co-production film “Man from Reno”, which I enjoyed very much. It was a mystery story that captured the audience. 开幕电影加拿大/日本合拍片“来自Reno的男人”,我看得津津有味。这是一部能抓住观众眼球的悬疑故事。 Man-From-Reno-Poster After the movie, there was a live interview with the Director and Producer. The question and answer session was interesting and effective way to communicate with the audience and great way to learn the process of film making. 影片结束后,有一场与导演和制片人的见面会。其中的问答环节很有意思,可以和其他观众交流心得,也是学习电影制作过程的绝佳途径。 Image 05 A gala was held after the movie. It was a fun exciting setting where I was able to meet up with friends over drinks and cake. What an exciting night it was to attend a film festival. 随后举行的晚会活动也振奋人心,在品尝美酒蛋糕之间,还能邂逅到各色朋友。多么美妙的电影之夜。 Image 03 It was a lovely movie night where I got to relax, learn, and meet up with friends. 这是一个醉人的电影之夜,我在这里身心放松,有所长进,又有朋友相伴。 Image 04 Wishing you enjoy and inspired by some of the festival films. 愿您能在观赏电影的同时收获启发, angela-signature2-a-moved-out
