Launched in 1996, the Vancouver Asian Film Festival is Canada's premier source of cinematic diversity, offering North American Asian filmmakers a stage for their short films, documentaries, and feature-length films. For the fest’s 16th anniversary, it gathers together a schedule that stirs up emotion with devastating drama and unflinching realism mixed with ample doses of romance and comedy. Thursday night's opening feature, Daylight Savings, continues the story of lovelorn musician Goh in the much-anticipated sequel to last year's festival sell-out, Surrogate Valentine. Matinee showings treat shorter attention spans and those who’ve come unstuck in time to a wealth of abbreviated films that illuminate cultural differences, including Saturday's "Finding Home" program with Ring Laila, a documentary that depicts the life of India's first Muslim female boxer, and The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom, a visual poem of strength and strife in the wave of Japan's 2011 tsunami. Evening features include the centrepiece presentation, Sunset Stories, a high-speed cinematic girl's night about romance and a race for a bone-marrow transplant from the cowriter of the hit Better Luck Tomorrow. Quinten Lee's fifth film White Frog, starring Booboo Stewart of the Twilight saga, closes the festival on a heart-tugging note of family drama with the coming-of-age tale of a boy with Asperger's syndrome.
