2019 TIDF on Tour kicking off in Spring!



The 2019 TIDF on Tour is about to kick off in Sping! TIDF will be traveling to five major locations, from Taichung as the first stop, and then on to Changhua, Pingtung, Hualien and Taitung with our best programme from the 2018 TIDF. We also partner up with various organisations and locations for screenings and events, including Fuzhong 15 - New Taipei City Documentary Cinema, Taoyuan Arts Cinema, NTHU Arts Centre, National Museum of Taiwan Literature in Tainan, Kaohsiung Film Archive, Chiayi, Yunlin, Peng-hu, Hong Kong, Tokyo Image Forum, King's College Londan, San Francisco Cinematheque, and more.

TIDF rolls out a special programme of Japanese documentary maestro HARA Kazuo’s retrospective, showcasing all five iconic works of his. Along with the critical acclaimed award-winning titles, a total of some 55 films from the 2018 TIDF programme, including “Filmmaker in Focus: Laila PAKALNINA”, “Focus Programme: SEA of Sadness”, “Taiwan Spectrum|Imagining the Avant-garde: Film Experiments of the 1960s”, and special screenings. The TIDF on Tour presents almost a hundred screenings and more than 30 post-screening discussions, sharing the rich programme of 2018 TIDF with audiences all over Taiwan.

It is also our honour to invite director HARA Kazuo to Taichung to present his masterpieces. Meanwhile, filmmakers such as J.P. SNIADECKI (El Mar La Mar), HUANG Hui-chen (Small Talk), LAU Kek-huat (Absent without Leave), WU Yao-tung (Goodnight & Goodbye), and the winner of 2018 TIDF Outstanding Contribution Award, KE Chin-yuan, will also attend post-screening discussions!

In addition to screenings, TIDF works with local partners from different locations, holding talks, DOC x Café and various events. We also invite Golden Horse Award-winning musician LIM Giong to perform at the Live Cinema at Liuchuan Canal Waterfront in Taichung. Hoping to amplify the magnitude of the power of documentary films!
