Director Hou Chi-Jan

Born on 15th November 1973 in Taipei. Writer and film director. Having worked on the “Database of Taiwan Cinema” since his collage days, Hou’s works tend to be lyrical and stylish, and are often characterized by the theme of time and memory. His experimental short “Stardust 15749001” won the Grand Prix at the Taipei International Film Festival in 2003. Hou's second short “My 747” won the Grand Prix at the Hong Kong IFVA Independent Short Film & Video Award in 2006. His documentary work “Taiwan Black Movies”, presenting the cult films of the repressive age of Taiwan's 1970s, was nominated for the Golden Horse Awards and invited to many international film festivals. His first feature film “One Day” was officially selected in the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival.
