Canadian Premiere

For its 38th edition, the International Festival of Films on Art offers a carte blanche to NOWNESS. The premiere of ChinaWave will feature a special presentation of NOWNESS films, one of which, Baji Quan, by Shen Haonan, will be a world premiere.

NOWNESS is a movement for creative excellence in storytelling celebrating the extraordinary of every day. Launched in 2010, NOWNESS’ unique programming strategy has established it as the go to source of inspiration and influence across art, design, fashion, beauty, music, food, and travel. Our curatorial expertise and award-winning approach to storytelling is unparalleled. We work with exceptional talent, and both established and emerging filmmakers, which connects our audience to emotional and sensorial stories designed to provoke inspiration and debate.

In China—and across the world—a new generation of Chinese creative talent is emerging from the underground and onto the global stage. Progressive, transgressive, equal parts punk and avant-garde, these young, multidisciplinary artists and filmmakers blend past and future, tradition and technology, to tell stories that conjure a new kind of present, so wholly their own. This is the China Wave.
