The Reel Ideas program enriches the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival’s vision by fusing industry and education. Our programming aims to provide networking and skills sharing opportunities between emerging talent, visiting artists and established filmmakers. Our mandate is to nurture the growth of Asian creatives within film and the arts at large and to explore multiple aspects of Toronto’s entertainment industry in nuanced ways.
Social platforms such as Twitter and Instagram are now powerful enough to shape career pathways and allow emerging creatives to forge new ways for themselves in all kinds of industries. In this session, creators and film professionals will learn how to mobilize these platforms to build opportunity, navigate the nuances of new media, and will receive practical tips to harness the power of digital influence for their career.
