Year-Round Highlights at Reel Asian

In the spirit of Romeo Candido’s feature film debut Lolo’s Child, celebrating its 20 year anniversary at Reel Asian, and the ground breaking nature of the water buffalo (kalabaw) of the Philippines, the Kalabaw Bursary is a grant to help a story teller’s project reach the finish line.

Reel Asian’s 2022 Opening Night Film Riceboy Sleeps has been collecting awards on the festival circuit. Reel Asian’s Aram is joined by writer/director Anthony Shim and lead actress Seung-yoon Choi to get behind the scenes on the making of the film, their inspirations, their guilty pleasures, and the eternal battle of whether rice is superior to noodles.

As Canada’s largest pan-Asian film festival, Reel Asian continues to grow, helping the work of Asian filmmakers and artists connect with new and familiar audiences. Make a donation today.
