The London East Asia Film Festival (LEAFF) has made Taiwan a central figure in its third annual film festival, with “Cinematic Journey Through Taiwan” giving attendees the opportunity to learn more about Taiwan through a series of film screenings, panel discussions, and in-depth conversations.
In total, ten films from Taiwan will be screened, covering the past, present and future of Taiwanese cinema.
There will be several exclusive talks, including at Asia House on November 2, where Bon An - the director of Sen Sen - will be in conversation, followed by ‘Taiwan Night’ & a drinks reception.
The film festival has also acknowledged the talent and creativity of emerging Taiwanese directors, and three have been shortlisted for the prestigious Philips-Lee Award: ‘The Great Buddha+’ by Huang Hsin-yao (2017), The Bold, The Corrupt and the Beautiful by Yang Ya-che (2017), and Dear Ex by Mag Hsu & Chih-yen Hsu (2018).
