Since the first edition of our festival, we have focused our attention to empowering women in film and media industries.

In both the 1st and 2nd edition, we hosted a seminar on Women's Voice in Film and Television.
Last year, at our 3rd edition, we co-hosted a fashion and beauty presentation in collaboration with Holt Renfrew, which was a unique way to bring together women filmmakers and industry leaders from both Canada and China. These seminars serve as a good opportunity to rethink the notion of women’s work as a fragmented set of stories in the larger context of film history.

Last year, Matt William Knowles starring in the film “Poppies,” won our Best Actor Award. Just last month, the film also won the Popular Choice award at the Katra Film Festival and has been shortlisted again at That Film Festival in Berlin. The director, Myles Yaksich said: "It has always been my dream to be able to write and direct "Poppies". I am very excited to have the opportunity to turn it into a movie. The story is about a flight from New York to Shanghai, a frustrated American lawyer was attracted to a wise Chinese woman who was next door, [which] then opened up an emotion that he had long buried in his heart."

We are ecstatic to see the success of “Poppies,” and we hope to further acknowledge and contribute to the success of well-deserving films such as this one!

Happy February!

For our movie of the month, today we will be celebrating "Feeling You" 未来的你/Je te sans, directed by Yuez Zeng which won the "Best Cinematography" at our last CCIFF awards ceremony!

"Feeling You" is a romantic love story between two characters who are telepathic despite living in two different time periods. As their telepathy allows them to share their sense of touch and hearing, the two embark on a journey in discovering how love can transcend both time and space.
