For the past 10 years, Reel Asian has created many education initiatives with the goal of providing the necessary skills and knowledge to Asian Canadian youth to explore career opportunities in the media arts. Since 2008, we created programs such as our Asian Heritage Month School Tour, our Unsung Voices Summer Video Production Workshop, and most recently, Wee Asian, for young children to attend our festival.
Reel Asian is a registered non-profit and a charitable and cultural organization. Our vision is to champion the future of diverse storytelling in Canada by advocating Asian representation in the media arts. Every year, Reel Asian supports over 1300 youths in the GTA by providing access to Asian cinema from around the world and increasing their media literacy.
