The Taiwan Film festival launches on 3 April with a trailblazing programme of UK premieres, a special retrospective of Tsai Ming-Liang’s films, curated by the director himself, and including the UK premiere of his feature-length virtual reality film at a specially-designed virtual reality (VR) pop-up cinema. Furthermore, over 65% of the film directors included are female and together they have directed 50% of the Festival’s programme.
The Festival celebrates Taiwan’s long and tempestuous history and diverse
cultural heritage through the uncensored lens of independent Taiwanese
filmmakers. The films cover a broad range of topical issues that are both
particular to Taiwan and also speak to a global audience – including LGBTQ
rights, ethnicity, land rights, environment and politics.
