Taiwan’s longest-running short film festival, the Golden Harvest Awards 金穗獎, is coming to our sunny shores this September! One of the most prominent festivals in Taiwan, throughout its
long history it has nurtured talented filmmakers like Ang Lee, Tsai Ming-liang, Wan Jen, and many others.
At the 41st Golden Harvest in 2019, short films from Singapore’s own National Youth Film Awards (NYFA) were selected to participate in a special programme where the directors had the
opportunity to attend the festival and screen their films all over Taiwan.
The cultural exchange continues as we share four acclaimed Golden Harvest short films along with four award-winning NYFA short films that screened in Taiwan. Alongside the films, we have
two panel discussions about Taiwan’s film scene and creative industry, led by directors, film programmers, and industry professionals – Taiwanese and Singaporean alike.
This special showcase is a celebration of our two islands’ works, which are vastly different in some ways yet strikingly familiar in others.
