Spotlight Taiwan 
Taiwan Film Festival 
There have been exciting developments in the Taiwan cinematic landscape in recent years, with more high quality and diverse films being made each year, gaining international attention and recognition. The Taiwan Film Festival provides a unique opportunity to see some of these great examples of contemporary Taiwan cinema on big screen, many of them screening for the first time in the UK. 

Seven award-winning feature films by emerging Taiwanese filmmakers have been handpicked to share with the audience of Edinburgh, each with a unique theme and telling touching modern stories in Taiwan, connected by the common thread of relationship and family to give a glimpse into the kaleidoscopic life of Taiwan. 
We are honoured to have directors and cast from Taiwan to attend audience Q&As at four of the screenings. There will also be an Asian Film Workshop at the University of Edinburgh and a piano recital concert by Yu-Siang Huang, the leading star from Touch of Light’ in the Reid Concert Hall on 29 November, both open to the public.
