A Message From Calgary Mayor Gondek

By March 30, 2024No Comments

On behalf of my City Council colleagues, thank you for being here to empower and celebrate Asian contributions to the film and media landscape!

The FascinAsian Film Festival is proudly unique to the prairies, and Calgary is equally proud to be the co-host city, along with Winnipeg! This year’s theme, The Year of the Dragon – The Year of Discovery, invites us all on a journey of exploration and enlightenment. Asian-Canadian perspectives, culture, and identity will be highlighted through the remarkable works of Asian-Canadian filmmakers and screen-based talent.

Through this festival, we bring Asian culture and storytelling directly into our homes, fostering deeper connections and understanding within our diverse community. It also offers a much-needed opportunity for creative expression, dialogue, and reflection. I encourage each of you to immerse yourselves in the experiences ahead, and may this festival inspire us all to embrace the diverse stories and voices that shape our city.

Congratulations to all the organizers, participants, and volunteers for another incredible FascinAsian Film Festival.

Jyoti Gondek
Mayor of Calgary
