Toronto’s Reel Asian Film Festival returns November 9-18 this year with a strong line-up of dramas and documentaries. POV is proud to support Reel Asian by connecting readers and doc fans with great films at the festival. One of the docs that audiences will want to see is the Toronto premiere of the moving Canadian documentary Made in Vietnam by director Thi Vo.
