VIFF is proud to present this showcase of films from East Asia. The Dragons & Tigers film series is the largest annual exhibition of East Asian films outside the region, and is internationally recognized as one of the most significant in the world. Many of the most acclaimed directors working today have had international or Western premieres in Dragons & Tigers, and this year its programmers continue their mission of introducing bold, creative and unique work to audiences. The program has now been expanded to include visions of the region from around the world; what remains the same is VIFF's commitment to East Asian film culture and the best that it offers.
Very grateful acknowledgement to our long time—and now retired—Dragons and Tigers programmer, Mr. Tony Rayns.
