The Taiwan Film Festival has launched as part of the 2022 TACEC and consists over 20 films from Taiwan. Of special note is the classic “The Rice Dumpling Vendors” [燒肉粽], a 1969 film that was restored by the Taiwan Film & Audiovisual Institute. Moreover, featured in the film selection is “Beyond Beauty: Taiwan from Above” [看見台灣] by the late Chi Po-Lin (Winner 2013 Golden Horse Award for Documentary) and “Listen Before You Sing” [聽見歌再唱]. The conference included several sessions commemorating Director Chi, and also included a discussion with Peter Ma, whose story the latter film is based on. These are all available for free online.
In celebration of the 51st year of the TACEC conference, the organizers are offering a discounted pass for $51 using the discount code: NYUCINEMA.
