The Urban Nomad Film Fest is now accepting entries for its ninth annual festival, set to take place in Taipei and Hsinchu starting April 30, 2010. I haven’t attended their events in the past but since it looks like I’ll be in town this year I’m excited to have the opportunity to view some interesting film. The emphasis on conversation lubricated by a bar will make the event more interesting.
Urban Nomad Film Fest is the oldest and best known underground film festival in Taiwan. It was founded in Taipei in 2002, and the ongoing project is to create a community-oriented film environment and put an end to the impersonal ‘black box’ movie theater environment where hundreds of people can watch films without really interacting with each other. We tend to hold festival screenings and events in warehouses, outdoor spaces and converted spaces, rather than traditional film theaters. Peripheral events include concerts, parties, discussion seminars and directors talks.
Deadline to submit feature length films is March 10th. They do accept international entries so they is an excellent excuse to visit Taiwan if your entry is accepted.
