toronto reel asian film festival, november 11-15

Another one for my friends up north... Next week, November 11-15, check out the 13th Annual Toronto Reel Asian Film Festival, a unique showcase of contemporary Asian cinema and work from the Asian diaspora. Works include films and videos by East and Southeast Asian artist in Canada, the U.S., Asia and all over the world.

The festival is Canada's premier pan-Asian international film festival, fostering the exchange of cultural and artistic ideals between east and west. It provides a public forum for homegrown Asian media artists and their work, and fuels the growing appreciation for Asian cinema in Canada.

Check out the full festival schedule, which includes films like Alan Mak & Felix Chong's Overheard, H.P. Mendoza's Fruit Fly, and David Boyle's White on Rice. Also be sure to check out the festival's Centerpiece Presentation, a rare screening of Wen Yimin's 1929 silent martial arts film Red Heroine.

Want something free? I'm giving away one pair of tickets to see the movie with the best title in the entire festival, Edwin's Blind Pig Who Wants To Fly, screening Sunday, November 15 at Innis Town Hall/Innis College. If you're interested, just email me with your name and contact info by the end of Monday, November 9. Be sure to include "REEL ASIAN TICKETS" in the subject line. I'll pick a winner at random, and you and a friend will be on your way to see Blind Pig!
