About this playlist

The Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival is pleased to offer these titles for viewing on Reel Asian is Canada's longest-running and largest showcase dedicated to contemporary cinema by East Asian and Southeast Asian moviemakers from around the world. Founded in 1997 and celebrating its 15th year this year, Reel Asian is proud to be Canada’s leading presenter of work by the world’s finest Asian filmmakers, including Canada’s most talented Asian-Canadian filmmakers.

The National Film Board has provided tremendous support to Reel Asian and the Asian-Canadian filmmaking community over the past 15 years, and we are proud of our ongoing partnership and collaboration.

These films have been selected to represent the depth and breadth of Asian-Canadian filmmakers that we have had the privilege to present. Ann-Marie Fleming, Anita Lee, and Minsook Lee are all award-winning filmmakers whose dedication to mentoring and supporting the next generation of media artists have been instrumental in developing Canada’s independent filmmaking landscape. We have also selected films by young filmmakers and animators whose work has been shown to much acclaim at Reel Asian, and who continue to innovate and delight our audiences.

Thank you to the NFB for its support over these years. We hope you enjoy these films from Reel Asian’s history, and look forward to seeing you at this year’s festival taking place November 9 to 19, 2011.
