FACL BC Documentary Selected For The 26th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival
September 6, 2022
FACL BC is pleased to announce that our documentary, “But I Look Like a Lawyer”, has been officially selected for the 26th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival (“VAFF”) to be held between November 3 - 13, 2022 in Vancouver, BC. This year’s festival theme is “Representation”.
“But I Look Like a Lawyer” shares stories of the discrimination, stereotyping and bias experienced by members of the Pan-Asian legal community. It aims to increase intercultural awareness and competency, and to surface the complexity of the historical, socio-economic and colonial aspects of these real lived experiences.
We are honoured to have our documentary selected for this year’s festival, and excited about the opportunity to share our documentary with a wider audience. VAFF is the longest running Asian film festival in Canada and attracts thousands of viewers over its four-day festival and other events throughout the year. Further, VAFF’s dedication to promoting and celebrating the diversity and depth of Asian culture and identity aligns closely with FACL BC’s mission.
We will share screening details with our membership as this information becomes available. Be sure to connect with us on social media and sign up for our newsletter to keep up with all the exciting updates!
