THE TAIWAN FILM FESTIVAL LAUNCHES IN ICELAND MARCH 8-24 WITH TRAILBLAZING STORYTELLING
FilmTaiwan announces the inauguration of the Taiwan Film Festival in Iceland and the UK. The festival celebrates Taiwan’s long and tempestuous history and diverse cultural heritage through the uncensored lens of independent Taiwanese filmmakers. An exciting programme of films will 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. As the only Mandarin-speaking country in the world who promotes freedom of speech, Taiwan has a powerful voice to tell stories others cannot.
Kicking off in Iceland, the festival will run from 8 – 24 March.
The opening film, The Great Buddha + will be featured as part of the StockFish Film Festival and the rest of the programme will be screened at independent cinema Bíó Paradís and IÐNÓ, a popular events space next to the Reykjavík Town Hall.
