Some 180 films from around the world will be showcased at the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival this year, which will open on 6 November.
As reported on Focus Taiwan, the annual festival will open with Taiwanese romance drama “Endless Nights in Aurora”, and proceed with 38 other Golden Horse Award-nominated films, including Berlinale’s Golden Bear-winner “Black Coal, Thin Ice”, and Zhang Yimou’s critically acclaimed “Coming Home”.
Wong Kar Wai’s “The Grandmaster” will also be screened as a closing film on 27 November. The director will present his one and only 35mm print and talk about his amazing journey with the film.
Aside from the nominated films, the Golden Horse festival will also be screening films helmed by the late French director Francois Truffaut and late British director Derek Jarman to pay tribute to the two legends.
Past winners, Hong Kong’s Aaron Kwok, and Taiwan’s Lee Kang-sheng and Gwei Lun-mei, will also share their acting experiences with the audiences. The latter, who is nominated for Best Actress this year for her role in “Black Coal, Thin Ice”, will also talk about the challenge of acting with her abundant experience in recent years.
The Golden Horse Film Festival will be held from 6 November to 27 November 2014 in Taipei Shin Kong Cinemas and Cinemark, while the 51st Golden Horse Awards Ceremony will be held at National Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall in Taipei.
