BananaMana Films is an award-winning production company that specializes in creating premium, aspirational Asian dramas in English for film, TV and web. Co-founded by writing, directing, producing and acting duo Jason Chan and Christian Lee.

Recently BananaMana Films just completed their debut feature film, Jimami Tofu (Officially selected at the 37th Hawaii International Film Festival coming this Nov 2017), which was filmed in Okinawa, Japan and Singapore, and follows the love story between a Chinese Singaporean chef, and a Japanese food critic woven around Okinawan Ryukyu Dynastic cuisine that holds the life medicine their broken hearts need to mend.

Their most prominent drama, Perfect Girl, started out as an independent web series made for SGD$1000, with a crew of 4 (inclusive of Jason and Christian who both acted in it). It went on to win 7 international awards and 17 nominations and achieved global distribution when it was picked up by Netflix and Korea’s NAVER TVcast.
