The Taiwan Film Showcase runs Friday, November 2 to Sunday November 4 at Atkinson Hall Auditorium at the University of California, San Diego. All films are free!
Every few decades, the Taiwan film industry takes stock of its current moment with a high-profile omnibus film. Perhaps not coincidentally, spotlights on Taiwanese cinema have been sprouting up all over the United States around the same time. This year alone, special showcases and essays were featured at both the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival and the New York Asian Film Festival.
The Taiwanese Film Showcase is proud to join with University of California, San Diego and Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Los Angeles (TECO-LA) for a weekend of free shorts, documentaries, and narrative features to stoke those passions and make them better known throughout San Diego.
