*DUE TO UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, THE SCREENING START TIME HAS CHANGED FROM 5:30PM to 6:15PM. WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.

Reel Asian has always shone the spotlight on a Canadian director or group of directors with our Canadian Spotlight program. For the first time, we focus on an individual whose primary work lies elsewhere. With our spotlight on award-winning producer Michael Fukushima, we look to investigate creative roles and break the stereotype of director as the only ‘auteur’ of a work–the sole proprietor of creative vision. We hope to demystify the producing process through a screening of Fukushima’s work (both his own and his collaborations) and a discussion of the art of producing. In the discussion, Fukushima will be joined by several directors with whom he worked–and will address topics unique to creative producing such as risk-taking, building creative teams and the vagaries of success.

ABOUT THE DIRECTOR:

Michael Fukushima has been making films since 1984. He joined the National Film Board in 1990, directing the Hot Docs-winning animated documentary, Minoru: Memory of Exile, and becoming an NFB animation producer in 1997. Fukushima co-created the NFB’s flagship emerging filmmaker program, Hothouse, and his credits reflect an eclecticism and diversity, particularly around abstract and slightly off-centre animation. He has worked hard to open up the genre to new audiences and new technologies, through interactive installations, mobile phones and urban stories. He is a multi- award-winning producer, most recently winning two awards at the Hiroshima Animation Film Festival. He is staying busy by developing a slate of “arty” short films by a bevy of interesting young Canadian creators alongside a handful of international co-productions and films by veteran Canadian filmmakers like Cordell Barker and Bruce Alcock.
