On behalf of Telefilm Canada, the National Film Board of Canada, and the Canadian Race Relations Foundation, we are pleased to invite you to attend an upcoming Zoom webinar titled, “Authentic Asian-Canadian Storytelling in Film: Exploring the Significance of Effective East Asian and South Asian Representation”. The event will be held virtually on May 12, from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m EST (1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Mountain time) via Zoom.

Despite recent successes of Asian artists in Hollywood, Asian representation in film has historically been either scarce or stereotypical at best. The panel will explore the unique challenges faced by Asian Canadian filmmakers and how they are disrupting these harmful portrayals to produce stories that reflect diverse Asian culture and shared experiences?

Join us for an in-depth discussion to recognize Asian Canadians’ resilience and achievements in the film industry in celebration of the Asian Heritage Month. Please confirm your attendance by registering above.

If you have any questions, please contact Viola Tian, Anti-Asian Racism Lead at vtian@crrf-fcrr.ca. We look forward to seeing you at the event.
