2014 WildView Taiwan Film Festival
2014 WildView Taiwan Film Festival

The 2014 WildView Taiwan Film Festival in association with Wildscreen brings you some fabulous activities at Shoushan National Nature Park! Four new films will be screened on Saturday, November 1, at 10 a.m., on the 2nd floor of the Planning Office, including 「Super Smart Animals: Episode 1」, 「Human Planet: Jungles - People of the Trees」, 「Ganga - Ribbon of Life」, 「Inside Nature's Giants - The Giraffe」. The film festival is a great chance for you to gain an insight into some of the harsh living conditions on our planet.

Well-known documentary director Ke Jinyuan will give a talk on 「Documentary Making and Environmental Protection」 at the premiere of the November films at 13:30 on November 1. Long-concerned about environmental protection issues, Director Ke, whose works are mainly ecology focused, has been exploring damage to the natural environment caused by changes in industry practices and policies, as well as possible solutions and the rise of civic consciousness. His works have been recognized in Taiwan's Golden Bell Awards and in many film festivals, at home and abroad. This is a not to be missed event!

The film festival runs from August 2 (Saturday), to December 27 (Saturday), 2014. Four ecology films will be screened all day every Saturday. Different films will be screened each month selected from the awarded films and finalists of the Wildscreen Festival in the U.K, affectionately known as the "Green Oscars". There will be a quiz after the post screening discussion. Answer a quiz question correctly to win a free gift!
