Keynote

We are pleased to announce that Derek Kwan, a filmmaker and actor with ties to the Vancouver Public Library’s Inspiration Lab, will be delivering the keynote at our 2019 conference.

About Derek Kwan:

Derek Kwan is a filmmaker and actor based out of Vancouver, Canada. With a passion for food and culture, his films showcase the human condition and provide a lens into a diverse Canadian experience not widely told through film. His documentaries have screened at film festivals worldwide. Notably, Taste of Identity (2015) was an Official Selection at the 19th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival where it was also nominated for Best Canadian Short. The film went on to win Best Canadian Short and Best Documentary at the 2015 Canada Shorts Film Festival.  Derek’s latest film Mẹ (2018), is a documentary short funded by Telus Storyhive and recently received the jury award for Best Short Documentary at the 2019 Seattle Asian American Film Festival. Many of Derek’s films and creative projects were made with the help of the resources available by the Vancouver Public Library and the VPL’s Inspiration Lab. Derek was featured in the VPL’s 2016 Annual Report and the VPL’s 2020 strategic plan to be recognized as a go-to venue for learning, creativity, and innovation in Vancouver.
