2014 WildView Taiwan Film Festival
2014 WildView Taiwan Film Festival

The 2014 WildView Taiwan Film Festival, held at the Preparatory Office of Shoushan National Nature Park in Kaohsiung City, continues to delight throngs of enthusiastic viewers! Screenings for four new films, 「Empire of the Desert Ants,」 「The Forest: The Fight for Light,」 「Queen of the Savannah,」 and 「Hummingbirds - Jewelled Messengers」 will be conducted at the Education Center on the second floor of the Shoushan National Nature Park Preparatory Office at1:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 4.

To celebrate the premiere of these October releases, Dr. Yang Chin-Cheng, professor of the Master Program of Plant Medicine at National Taiwan University, has been invited to give a featured talk titled 「Insects Are All Around: Understand Insects, Understand Life」 at 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 4. Dr. Yang is a renowned entomologist who specializes in the study of eusocial insects and pests. His research paper on red imported fire ants was published in Science, one of the world's topmost academic journals. Insects are everywhere in our daily lives, but what do we know about them? Dr. Yang will be giving a simple but interesting introduction to the complex world of insects. Both the talk and its subsequent screenings will be wonderful celebrations of nature that you would not want to miss! The film festival will be held from Saturday, August 2, 2014, to Saturday, December 27, 2014, during which fascinating films on nature and wildlife will be available for viewing all-day every Saturday. Different films will be screened each month, all of which are selected from amongst the award winners and finalists of the UK's Wildscreen Festival, otherwise known as the "Green Oscars". Quizzes will be held after each post-screening discussion at which you may win exciting prizes by providing the correct answers to our questions!
