Images Festival will be returning to East and South East Asia this fall to present their film tour! This year Images will be partnering with ARKIPEL Festival to present two programs of films/videos featuring work from a group of artists, including Reel Asian filmmakers Luo Li and Leslie Supnet.

First stop: Jakarta, Indonesia from August 26-28

The programming for the East and South East Asia tour in Jakarta will feature RIVERS AND MY FATHER, directed by Hamilton-based filmmaker, Luo Li. Rivers and My Father was the opening night film for the 2011 Images Festival.

Leslie Supnet’s film, YOU ARE HERE, is part of the shorts programme featuring some recent selections from Images’ 26th Festival. More information here.

Reel Asian screened Luo Li’s short film, “Ornithology”, back in 2005 and co-presented “Rivers and My Father” with Images Festival in 2011. Li’s latest feature film, “Emperor Visits The Hell”, was part of the official selection of the 2013 Hong Kong International Film Festival.

Reel Asian had the pleasure of screening Leslie’s film, “Hang in There”, during our 2011 festival and also “Gains and Losses” at our festival last year. Leslie was also one of the participating filmmakers featured in this year’s Asian Heritage Month School Tour (interview here!)
