What is YVR Alberni?

Objective: Create consumer excitement; promote Vancouver most luxury retailers and hospitality sector to the locals, visitors by showcasing what is available to them in the heart of Vancouver’s “Luxury Zone” – the 30+ high end retailers, restaurants and attractions on the one block area around the 1000 Block Alberni form an area that is considered the most exclusive shopping and dining area in Western Canada
Challenge: The area sometimes referred to as a “Luxury Zone” has not received the community recognition that should be warranted. Although part of the Vancouver Downtown BIA, this exclusive block is lost in such a large BIA and has been unable to develop a brand on its own.
Goal: To develop a brand for the “Luxury Zone” with digital properties and hosts a collection of exclusive events ranging from luxurious jewelry festivals, super car show to seasonal holiday spectaculars. These annual must-see events are featured only on Alberni. #OnlyonAlberni

VAFF INDUSTRY presents: AIM³ SUMMIT (Asians in Movies + Media + Music)

For 20 years, VAFF has championed increasing diversity and representation in mainstream media, in front of and behind, the camera. Vancouver is the ideal location for like-minded advocates to gather—we are home to a large, active Asian filmmaking and acting population, affectionately referred to as “Hollywood North”, and arguably the best gateway to Asia. VAFF fiercely supports campaigns such as #StarringJohnCho and #OscarsSoWhite, and will continue to help coordinate these passionate efforts into an actionable plan for substantial change.

For each of the three summit sessions, panel speakers will share personal stories, journeys, and experiences in their fields, then gather at the end of the session to participate in a roundtable discussion allowing for the audience the opportunity to join in on the conversations.

AIM³ session registration is open to VAFF Industry, Filmmaker and VIP Passholders, as well as festival ticket holders with membership.
