Taiwan in focus at Indian film festival
Taiwan will be highlighted at the 2010 International Film Festival of India, with eight Taiwanese movies to be featured in the Country Focus Section.
Organized by the Directorate of Film Festivals under the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, India’s most prestigious film festival and competition has also arranged a discussion forum on Taiwanese New Wave Cinema.
Indian audiences have developed a keen interest in movies made in Taiwan after “The Wall” and “I Can’t Live Without You” walked away with the IFFI Golden Peacock for best film in 2007 and 2009, respectively, forum organizers said.
The films to be screened, released between 1982 and 2010, are: “Eat Drink Man Woman,” “Growing Up,” “In Our Times,” “Juliets,” “The Sandwich Man,” “Taipei Story,” “A Time to Live and A Time to Die” and “Viva L’Amour.”
