“As both a key launch pad for films in North America and home to huge audiences for Asian cinema, we think Toronto can be a prime meeting place for the Asian and western film industries,” TIFF artistic director Cameron Bailey said in annoucing the upcoming Asian film summit.
Other summit guests will be announced in the coming weeks as Toronto continues to establish ties with the Asian film industry, especially Bollywood and China.
