Wonderphil Entertainment Picked up Barbara Lee’s Canadian Feature Doc “Sing My Song” Launching Worldwide Sales at Cannes

Boutique sales agent Wonderphil Entertainment has picked up Vancouver-based Barbara Lee’s feature documentary Sing My Song, launching worldwide sales at the Cannes Film Market. Asian American Movies (AAM.tv) will world premiere the documentary feature on streaming on October 14, 2024, this Canadian Thanksgiving.

From Vancouver, British Columbia, to Hong Kong and Nashville, Tennessee, Sing My Song chronicles an Asian Canadian woman’s dream to get her song sung and recorded. In this entertaining and personal journey, filmmaker/artist Barbara Lee poses the larger cultural question of why there are still no Asian North American pop stars in 2020s.

The distribution deals between Wonderphil and Asian American Movies (AAM.tv) are negotiated by Phi Gorn, CEO of Wonderphil, Quentin Lee, 2024 Canadian Screen Awards nominee and Executive Producer of Sing My Song, and filmmaker Barbara Lee.

“Barbara’s journey is unique yet universal. I feel it will be interesting for everyone — whether they’re in the entertainment business or not — to ride along and experience her adventures in the music world,” said Phil Gorn of Wonderphil Entertainment, which has been a trusted, filmmaker-friendly, sales company for the past 18 years, selling to distributors domestically and internationally.

A veteran in the Canadian entertainment industry, Barbara Lee has founded Vancouver Asian Film Festival (VAFF) in 1997 and remains a board member and president of VAFF. She has worked as a broadcast journalist/reporter and received the national Radio and Television News Directors’ Association (RTNDA) Award for Best Editorial in 1998. Her film “Between the Laughter” was one of the National Film Board’s REELDIVERSITY 2004 winners which aired on CBC and PBS. She is currently also the founder and board chair of Racial Equity Screen Office (RESO) in Canada.

Asian American Movies (AAM.tv) is a global niché streamer focusing on diasporic Asian Pacific Islander content, available on IOS, Android and the Roku Channel.
