Festival Accès Asie is proud to collaborate with the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival in welcoming Sense of Wonder, selected as Reel Asian’s Best Short Asian-Canadian Films that premiered in Toronto.
Sense of Wonder, a special selection of Asian Canadian films, is presented by the Toronto Reel Asian Festival to celebrate Asian Heritage Month of May, and wil be presented as part of a cross-Canada tour through Ottawa, Winnipeg, Vancouver and Montreal. The program for Montreal’s Asian Heritage Festival, Accès Asie, will include À la rencontre du paysage québécois, a special compilation that was made especially for Montreal, which comprises of works by Quebecois artists.
This original and diversified program highlights the particular talents of Asian artists throughout Canada. With formats ranging from fiction and animation to experimental art, these creators, each in their own voice, evoke their cultural identities vis-à-vis their country of origin or adoption.
‘Inspiring our imaginations in the darkest of moments, this year’s selection of the best Asian Canadian shorts invokes a playful outlook on tragedy.’
– Heather Keung, Artistic Director of the Reel Asian Festival
