Graduated with a BFA at Concordia University, Amanda Nguyen has a major in Film Studies and a minor in Spanish. As predictive, her interests rely on film and language as their union serves as an empowering tool to digest the realities one faces daily.
Since early 2014, Nguyen has been writing film critics for Revista Familia, a magazine affiliated with Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca in Spain.
Nguyen organized the 4th edition of AmérAsia Montreal Asian Film Festival in late 2014, a four-day event that took place at Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and Gallery Phi Centre. With the support of Canada Council for the Arts and Ville de Montréal, this film festival had a lineup of 28 Asian related films, animations, and documentaries; a video/filmmaking competition; a camera aesthetic workshop with reputed Montreal based film scholars Peter Rist and Erik Bordeleau; and a memorable master class with the Filipino independent filmmaker Kidlat Tahimik, hosted by film studies Professor Catherine Russell.
This blog is Nguyen’s online film diary where she can share her perspectives on films she believes are worth to watch. Reflecting on films is essential as film is more than an entertaining and informing tool, it is a way of living.
