About the Event
While the world is feeling wretched from the pandemic, Taiwanese movies are crowded with stories which demonstrates the island’s abundant cultural capacity. The films such as Zone Pro Site: The Moveable Feast and Man in Love represent Taiwan’s unique food culture through brilliant visual images. Hence the theme of this year’s festival, "Flavours", is to connect the sense of visual and taste, together offering the overseas audiences to sample the beauty of Taiwan.
“Due to the pandemic, the festival had to be postponed and cinema screenings cancelled. Instead, we will have online events such as Live Opening Night Banquet!, for movie fans to interact in virtual engagements of the festival. We want to bring the communities together even in lockdown” said Benson Wu, Festival Director.
Streaming on-demand from the 16 to 30 September, the festival program comprises of 13 feature films and 8 ingenious short films: included on the opening night film is the award-winning romantic comedy My Missing Valentine; The Silent Forest a daunting thriller adapted from real life story of the school violence, and Moneyboys a film with the collaboration of Taiwan, Austria, France and Belgium and received 3 nominations in Cannes Film Festival.
