Readers have asked us why we haven’t provided more information about Toronto Reel Asian Film Festival. While it certainly is a film festival about Asian films, from our vantage point it is difficult to interview and provide specific information about films being screened because most of the feature films are foreign language films that are not done or starring Asian-Americans. Of the only three films from North American being screened, two are documentaries, hence no Asian-American actors or actresses, leaving only Surrogate Valentine as the lone narrative feature film from North America. As a website devoted to promoting Asian-American films, it doesn’t leave us much to promote.
