This virtual ADFF is made up of 16 films that explore racial injustice, urbanization and utopian societies. (Timely, right?) The lineup includes the North American premiere of Tokyo Ride, a feature that road trips around Tokyo highlighting the work of architect Ryūe Nishizawa.

This one-woman Christmas rom-com follows a woman who, after a bad breakup, dives headfirst into the dating world (and, spoiler, it sucks). Audiences have three options to view the show: in-person as part of a distanced live show, livestreamed or via digital recording.

Check out this collab between two local dance companies: TomoeArts in Vancouver and Satsuki-kai in Burnaby. The free digital performance is a presentation of Japanese classical and traditional dance, but ranges from kabuki to shin-buyoh (modern dances to popular music, or whatever’s hip with the kids nowadays).
Date: December 12Venue: Onlinevancouveropera.ca
The COVID-era digital premiere of this opera is actually not far off the original: it was specifically composed for a Christmas Eve television broadcast in 1951. The Vancouver Opera’s Leslie Dala conducts this show (and it’s a family affair—his son, Andreas Dala, plays Amahl).
