Taipei Film Festival

2013 Taipei Film Festival

The Taipei Film Festival (Chinese: 台北電影節; pinyin: Táiběi Diànyǐng Jié) is a film festival promoted by the city of Taipei, Taiwan, the Republic of China, through the Department of Cultural Affairs of the Taipei City Government. It was first held in 1998, from September 28 to October 5.[1] Chaired by director, actress, film and stage producer Sylvia Chang, Taipei Film Festival is the only festival in Taiwan that offers a New Talent Competition for aspiring directors from around the world and a Taipei Award competition for Taiwanese filmmakers. The Festival screens around 200 films from more than 30 countries worldwide. With approximately 100,000 attendants each year, Taipei Film Festival has become one of the most influential film festivals in the Chinese-speaking world. In 2010, the Taipei Film Festival celebrated its 12th edition, which ran from June 25 to July 15.

Women Make Waves is a longer-established film festival, in Taiwan since 1993, and the largest women's film festival in Asia. Since 2005, there is also an annual Asian Lesbian Film and Video Festival in Taipei.[2]
