This past weekend I was in Montreal to attend the 2nd annual AmerAsia Film Festival. Reel Asian was a proud co-presenter of SUITE SUITE CHINATOWN which kicked off its North American tour in Montreal.
On the industry side, AmerAsia offered several sessions including an Introductory Co-Production Summit with a case study of Yung Chang and Eyesteel Film‘s current project CHINA HEAVYWEIGHT, which they are shooting now. Yung was in China but sent along a short video describing his experiences working on various projects in China, and the progression from his first feature shot there, the award-winning UP THE YANGTZE.
These guys are definitely on to a winning formula, and I am eagerly looking forward to CHINA HEAVYWEIGHT.
