For our 25th anniversary, Reel Asian is proud to launch the Fire Horse Award in honour of our founder Anita Lee. We are also pleased to announce that the AnimAsian Award has been renamed the Michael Fukushima AnimAsian Award.

In celebration of Reel Asian’s 25th Anniversary, the festival commissioned three short works to be shown before each film during the festival. Made with their own interpretation of this year’s theme, “Here for the Bigger Picture,” we are proud to introduce the artists selected.
