Reel Asian is proud to co-present the shorts programme Looking Back, Moving Forward on Thursday, November 8, 8:30PM at the 5th Annual Regent Park Film Festival this year.

From British Columbia to the Caribbean, three films explore the
importance of telling our story in building our own identity. These stories give strength, like that of Massiel, who decides to stay in her homeland of Cuba, even when all other family members have left; reveal a proud history, as that of Chinese-Jamaicans, as recalled by filmmaker Jeanette Kong; and inspire, as does Banchi Hanuse on a personal journey to determine her place in preserving the oral traditions of the Nuxalk people of Canada.

Including:

  • Distancias (Directors
    Mariona Guiu & Lina Badenes, Cuba/Spain) – trailer
  • The Chiney Shop (Director Jeanette Kong, Canada) – trailer
  • Cry Rock (Director
    Banchi Hanuse, Canada) – trailer

*All Festival Programing is FREE, and Free childcare is available*

  1. I am doing a school project on publicity, PR and Social Media promotional use in Independent Films and short films and this would help me very much! Thank you. If anyone is looking for interns to work at the Film festival…please help me.
