The 30th annual Vancouver International Film Festival concluded its 16-day run on Friday, October 14th.

The $10,000 Dragons & Tigers Award for Young Cinema, which is generously supported by donors Brad Birarda and Robert Sali, went to Tibetan director Sonthar GYAL of China for The Sun-Beaten Path. Presented to the director of a creative and innovative film from East Asia that has not yet won significant international recognition, the award was previously announced on October 6th. The distinguished jury was comprised of Ann HUI, the world-famous director whose latest film, the Venice-prize-winning A Simple Life, was screened in VIFF this year; Simon FIELD, former Head of Cinema at the ICA in London and former director of the International Film Festival Rotterdam, who is currently a consultant to the Dubai Film Festival and was co-producer of the 2010 Palme d'Or winner in Cannes, Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives; and actor/director YANG Ikjune, whose feature Breathless has won many domestic and international prizes. They considered eight films in competition.
