Reel Asian Short Film: “Magical Coincidence” with Asiansploitation’s James, Franco & Gene (Nov 7)
Come see three of your favourite Asiansploitation performers, Gene Abella, James Cheng and Franco Nguyen as they light up the big screen in the world premiere of the short film, Magical Coincidence by Keith Lock. It is part of the program “Once Lost, Now Found“.
Two lonely souls are brought together by strange and fateful occurrences. Ostensibly a romantic comedy, the production of this film is unique; using a coin toss to dictate specific creative decisions including writing, casting, and production. Winner of Reel Asian’s 2011 So You Think You Can Pitch? Competition.
Born in Toronto, Keith Lock holds an MFA in Film from York University. He received a Gemini Award nomination for Best Short Drama for A Brighter Moon in 1987, as well as Best GTA Filmmaker Award at Reel Asian for The Dreaming House. Lock’s second feature film, The Ache premiered at Reel Asian 2009.
