VAHMS Partners to Present “Tyrus” at VAFF


We are pleased to announce that VAHMS and explorASIAN will be a partner for the screening of Tyrus by Director Pamela Tom on Saturday November 5th, 2016 from 4:30pm-7:15pm at Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinemas Vancouver.

Tyrus features the most legendary Asian American artist you’ve (probably) never heard of: the film celebrates the life and art of 105-year old L.A.-based artist Tyrus Wong, a Chinese American painter, production illustrator, lithographer, and kite builder best known for his concept art for Walt Disney’s feature animated film Bambi (1942). Together with his game-changing later career as a production concept artist for Warner Bros. Studios, Wong’s strikingly beautiful concept paintings and sketches continue to influence the work of generations of animators and production designers.


We are extremely excited to be partnering with the Vancouver Asian Film Festival for this film.

As partners of this beautiful film, we are offering VAHMS members, volunteers, and friends the opportunity to use a special promotional code to receive 10% off ticket bundles of six people or more to purchase tickets. If you are a friend of VAHMS and have not received this code, please message  Coordinator Eleanor Munk at <> with your request.

We hope to see you there!
