Reelworld Film Fest OPENING NIGHT GALA


Wednesday Oct 11, 2017
06:00 PM until 10:00 PM


Join us on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 for the opening night celebration of the 17th annual Reelworld Film Festival. The evening will include a cocktail reception, the Toronto premiere of award-winning documentary ABU, and an engaging Q&A with filmmaker Arshad Khan and special guests. ABOUT THE FILM: As a gay man, Filmmaker Arshad Khan explores his troubled relationship with his devout, Muslim, Pakistani father Abu. Khan documents his struggles with his sexual identity as his Muslim parents attempt to fit into Canada. Using family archives, pictures and movies, ABU is a revealing and deeply affecting portrait of a family’s tug-o-war between conservatism and liberalism that has greater implications for those choosing the west as their home.
