About the Festival

AmérAsia Film Festival welcomes everyone to discover the artistic growth of the Asian diaspora and the groups of media artists in film and video. It is not only a new platform for networking and for discovering Asian-Canadian independent film/video and Asian inspired media art works; it is also open to encourage the unique Montreal art scene, where French and English are immersed in a creatively experimental hub in North America. AmérAsia focuses on two components: film screenings and special events.

AmérAsia is presenting 20+ films from 10 countries around the world namely, Korea, Canada, United States, China, Germany, France, Brazil, India, Japan and the Philippines.
