In celebration of Asian Heritage Month this coming May, we are kicking off its Mighty Asian Moviemaking Marathon campaign with a special “Diversity in Filmmaking” panel series provided virtually from May 9 to June 6, 2020 (every Saturday at 2:00 pm) to better cope with the monumental change that the pandemic has brought the world and the film industry.
We want to acknowledge the current fight for social justice around the world. We stand in solidarity with the Black community and its countless allies demanding justice in the wake of yet another tragic death at the hands of racism. Now is the time to change the course of the future. Now is the time to write the history of tomorrow in a way in which we may all be proud. Now is the time to speak up instead of staying silent.
We bring in a special edition panel to AMPLIFYING BLACK VOICES IN BC FILM – Sat JUNE 13th, 2020 at 2pm.
Come spend an hour with us every Saturday to explore how CoVid-19 has impacted all aspects of filmmaking and filmmakers’ lives. Our creative producers Mayumi Yoshida, Nach Dudsdeemaytha and Joshua Lam, as well as producers Arnold Lim, Lynne Lee and Regina Leung will lead a panel discussion each week about different areas of film development and production and addressing issues arising in these unprecedented times.
