"Best Small Festival"
NOW Magazine's Best of Toronto
"Reel Asian strikes the best balance between cutting edge and community. Strong programming and deep roots attract a super-hyphenated tribe, while the festival keeps a year-round presence with screenings of Thai epics, homegrown debuts or mad jolts from Japan."
The 2003 Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival runs November 26-30. Over 50 shorts and features by and about Asians all over the world will screen in 15 different programmes at four venues in the downtown core. There are also FREE workshops for both industry insiders and neophytes alike. The Opening and Closing Night Gala parties take place at two of the hottest nightspots in the Little Italy entertainment district. Last year's festival attracted an audience of 3,000 and this year's festival promises to be even bigger and better!
