Toronto International Film Festival to host Asian Film Summit

By NewsDesk • Published on July 4, 2012

Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival announced that Toronto Asian Film Summit will take place during the 2012 Festival, on Monday, September 10 at the Shangri-La Hotel.

“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,” said Bailey.

Bringing together leaders in film production, finance, distribution, exhibition and policy, the Toronto Asian Film Summit aims to strengthen bridges between the film industries of Asia and the West.

International actor, producer and director Jackie Chan will attend the Summit as guest of honour. Senator Chris Dodd, chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) will also attend the summit.

The full line-up for the summit will be announced in the coming weeks. The Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 6 to 16, 2012.
