The selected works are not limited to any one institution. The PL will soon expand to launch artist residency programs to exchange works and artists between Asia and Canada.

Mi-jeong Lee is a Canadian independent multidisciplinary artist in film, writing, video, and curating born in Seoul, South Korea. Her first film script, Naked Fish, received a script development funding from National Film Board of Canada in 1995, while she was a foreign student; her artistic practice merged to film/video production from this occurrence.
Lee began her professional career as a journalist in 1984 and began to integrate the media arts since her migration to Montreal in 1993. As a minority living in Montreal, she became intricately interested in the issues of Asian culture and identity in Canadian society. As such, she founded Asian film centered institutions; Ciné-Asie, AmérAsia Montreal Asian Film Festival, Korean Film Festival, and Ciné-Asie Creatives. Her independent film and video works and practices include I Am the Park (2004), Façades (2005), Underground (2007), Breathe (2009), and the video installation piece Turn Around (2008), Picnic (2010). She also published a Korean-language novelization of the Luc Besson’s film Le Grand Bleu (1993). Her first feature film screenplay, Midnight to 4A.M., is in progress, yet has received developmental support from Telefilm and Busan International Film Festival.
