The Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival (Reel Asian) is a cultural organization dedicated to strengthening the Asian Canadian and international film community. Through distinctive programming and educational initiatives, Reel Asian strives to bring the best of Asian media arts to Canada.
The mandate of Reel Asian is to produce a public film and video festival as well as other screenings throughout the year for the purposes of educating and advancing the public’s understanding and appreciation of the historical, social and cultural contributions of people of Asian and Asian Canadian heritage, and to educate artists through participation in such events and related professional development programming.
Reel Asian’s annual programming exemplifies the range, diversity and richness of Asian film and video in all their forms. In showcasing the finest, in some instances underrepresented, work by and about Far East and Southeast Asian, Asian North American and Asian diasporic artists and themes, the festival aims to foster and to enhance the visibility, creation, dissemination and understanding of Asian and Asian Canadian contributions to the film and video arts, and to local, provincial, national, and transnational cultural communities.
