Project Introduction

With the aim of promoting consideration of Taiwan’s cinematic development on its own terms, this landmark project offers audiences the opportunity to experience a season of director focused film series followed by live Q&A sessions. In doing so, the project seeks to broaden awareness and understanding of Taiwanese cinema among UK audiences.

Drawing insight and expertise from across the UK, Europe and Taiwan, the project will bring together leading film scholars to critically examine the works of highly accomplished yet under-examined filmmakers who have followed Taiwanese cinema’s ‘auteurs’ of the late 1980s such as Hou Hsiao-Hsien and Ang Lee.

The first series will focus on Director Hou Chi-Jan, running from Monday 26th October to Friday 30th October. This will be followed by Director Thomas Lin Shu-Yu from Monday 2nd November to Friday 6th November, and conclude with Director Cheng Yu-Chieh from Monday 9th to Friday 13th November.

For more information on the project and Taiwan Post-New Wave Cinema, visit the Taiwan Post-New Wave Cinema Project website.

The Taiwan Post-New Wave Cinema Project is free to attend and open to all.

Director Q&A sessions and Roundtable events will be held virtually through Microsoft Teams. Online screening links will be sent to those who have registered through each film's Eventbrite page.

*This programme is in development and subject to change. More events will be added as soon as they are confirmed.

Please Note: Due to licencing regulations we are required to prioritise screening access for audiences based in the UK for certain films on the programme. For these films, only those who have registered with a .uk email address will be provided with screening links. Films which are subject to this regulation will have a notification listed on their individual event page and Eventbrite page.
