About

Your story. Our world.

The Canada China International Film Festival is held by Canada China Art-Tech, a non-profit organization, dedicated to fostering relations and understanding between China and Canada. Together, we facilitate cultural dialogue between the two nations by connecting stakeholders in the fields of art, technology, and digital interactive media in order to prompt Canadian artists in Canada and abroad.

We also support Canadian independent media arts, invest in and contribute to the development of new technologies, and combine art and technology to create new art forms such as non-linear storytelling, augmented reality cinema, and interactive documentaries.

We organize festivals, workshops, seminars, and conferences for the exchange of ideas and culture. These events help to showcase Canadian independent media artworks and transfer knowledge between cultures and the diverse arts community.

Many of our members are working artists who’s exceptional reputation is known in both Canadian and Chinese creative communities. Our members regularly collaborate with professionals, artists, and cultural communities in arts and technology.
