2014 WildView Taiwan Film Festival
2014 WildView Taiwan Film Festival

The long-awaited 2014 WildView Taiwan Film Festival is here! The festival opening movie "The Last Lions" will be screened at the Planning Office of Shoushan National Nature Park at 10 a.m., Saturday, August 2. The movie narrates a touching story about how an ostracized lioness leads her three cubs in a fight for survival. The movie introduction and post-screening discussion will not only lead the audience to understand the tough challenges of life in the jungle but also to appreciate the joys and beauty of this life. There will be three other interesting wildlife films in August: "African Cats", "Tiger Dynasty", and "Hippo: Nature's Wild Feast". This film festival is a cinematic feast you'll not want to miss!

Sun Qiyuan, a nature photographer who has been to Africa more than 60 times, will be invited from Hong Kong to give an afternoon talk on 「Lions, Tigers and Hippos in the Wild」. Influenced by his mother as well as the famous writer, Guo Lianghui, Mr. Sun was exposed to literature and fine arts from a young age and has also studied archaeology and ecology on his own since childhood. He is a well-known wildlife photographer who has published many wildlife collections.

The film festival will run from August 2 to December 27. Fascinating wildlife movies will be screened all day every Saturday. Different movies will be screened each month and all movies are selected from award winners and finalists in the UK's Wildscreen Festival, affectionately known as the "Green Oscars". There will be a spot quiz after the post-screening discussions. Anyone answering a question correctly will win a free gift!

Time: August 2, 2014 (Saturday) to December 27, 2014 (Saturday). All-day screenings every Saturday.

※ Because other activities will be hosted in the Planning Office of Shoushan National Nature Park on August 9 and November 8, screenings are scheduled for August 10 (Sunday) and November 9 (Sunday).
