Metro Vancouver Asian Film & Media Arts Group Message Board › Your Kontinent: Richmond Int'l Film and Media Arts Festival Screens New Film
A unique summer festival which combines international films and media art performances with delicious food and drink, Your Kontinent offers a savory cultural experience packed with insights and inspirations.
Taking place at the heart of Richmond’s downtown district from July 20-22, the Your Kontinent: Richmond International Film and Media Arts Festival is a community-wide celebration of arts and culture that has something for everyone.
A sumptuous feast for the senses, Digital Carnival will kick off this year’s festival with a bang! Back by popular demand, the Dim Sum Movie pairs an 8-piece dim sum sampler with The Cooked and the Raw, a gourmet's journey around Taiwan. The film not only showcases mouthwatering dishes from Southeast Asia, but offers a glimpse into the character of a complex nation through its diverse food cultures.
The festivities wind down with Theatre Under the Sky, a family-friendly outdoor event with a fun fair vibe. Bring your blankets and lawn chairs, and enjoy Richmond’s very own outdoor cinema while snacking on popcorn, cotton candy and Japadogs.
