September 2019: JHI Faculty and Advisory Panel member, Dariush Derakhshani, is the VFX Supervisor of 1982 (2019), a feature that won the Netpac Award for World or International Asian Film Premiere, at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). The jury gave 1982 the award due to its “adventurous, imaginative style, and subtle, confident film making, bravely juxtaposing and framing the universal innocence and charm of youth within harrowing historical context.”
The jury (selected from the Network for the Promotion of Asian Pacific Cinema) included Chairperson Beckie Stocchetti, Kanako Hayashi, and Albert Shin.
