POV 28 Blazes with Multicultural Storytelling

Persistence of Vision Film Festival 28/ POV28’s provocative short films showcase the candid and diverse work of these fourth and third year emerging artists in the UBC Film Production program at UBC Theatre and Film. Twenty-one films, each 3-15 minutes long, range in genres from World War II Historical Fiction to Asian Queer Horror and explore timely topics through the confident gaze of their generation taking a step further to advocate authentic representation of various cultures.

Past POV films have screened at multiple international film festivals including the Toronto International Film Festival, the Vancouver International Film Festival and the Cannes and Berlin Film Festivals. We invite you to see them here first and meet the creatives behind them!

Women and people of colour fill over half of the key roles: Writer, Director, Producer, and Director of Photography with stories that contain powerful global reach. Filmmakers from Ecuador, Japan, Mexico, France, South Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong use aspects of their dialect and culture in their storytelling adding to the Canadian landscape.
