Thank you to the U of T Design in Design Committee for finding a way to make stats fun (and here we were thinking it wasn’t possible). Like the breadth films that Reel Asian offers, our audiences are made up of individuals from all over the world. Finding the right film for everyone is a challenge that we enjoy taking on every year. We hope you will find a movie that that piques your interest this year! Full programming line-up will be announced next week on October 8th. Stay tuned…
Last year, I was approached by U of T student Joe Park who was starting a new student group called Design in Design. They are made up students with design skills who lend their creative services to other student-run organizations. Joe was looking to expand their services to “outside” organizations and offered to help Reel Asian reach the student population in a fun and creative way. This is the first of 3 posters that Joe, Carrie and their awesome team created. Interested in hiring their services? Contact Joe at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you enjoy this “Did You Know?” series!
