Founded in 1996 as a registered company, Ciné-Asie started its activities in 1997 with the “Three Korean Master Filmmakers” event in Montréal, Ottawa, Toronto, and Vancouver in collaboration with cinémathèques in Canada and the New York Cultural Center. Between 1998 and 2000 Ciné-Asie hosted monthly Asian and Asian-American film screenings and seminars in partnership with the Cinémathèque Québécoise in Montréal. During this time Ciné-Asie also organized Asian film events at the Asia Pacific Foundation and published the bilingual monthly local film newsletter “QuiFaitQuoi” on Asian film and filmmakers from Canada and abroad.
In 1999, Ciné-Asie was incorporated and co-organized “Chinese Cinema, 1933-49” together with Concordia University as part of the Film Society of Lincoln. That same year Ciné Asie organized the “Amérasia International Film and Video Festival” in Montréal and started to host monthly social events for the Asian Film and Video Art Society, a support group of Asian-Canadian artists.
After a six year break Ciné-Asie resumed its work by programming and coordinating Asian-Canadian film screenings at the Asian Heritage Festival for Acces-Asie, a non-profit organization in Montréal. In addition, Ciné-Asie intensified its collaboration with the Cinémathèque Quebecoise in Montréal by organizing a retrospective of Korean Films in 2006 and of director Hong Sang-Soo’s films in 2007. In 2008 Ciné-Asie also resumed its monthly Asian-Canadian film screenings presented at the Cinémathèque Québécois.
