Award-winning Taiwanese director Chung Mong-hong’s (鍾孟宏) new feature film has been selected for the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
TIFF announced on Tuesday (Aug. 13) the lineup for its 2019 Contemporary World Cinema (CWC) program. A total of 48 titles that explore families, female-driven narratives, and the consequences of social and political crises around the world were selected for the competition, including Chung’s “A Sun.”
“Contemporary world cinema is the heartbeat of the festival,” said TIFF Artistic Director Cameron Bailey, in a statement. “This is where audiences feel the pulse of what’s happening now all around the world in screen storytelling.”
“A Sun” will premiere at TIFF, which takes place from Sept. 5-15, and is released in Taiwan on Oct. 25.
