Vancouver Taiwanese Film Festival (TWFF), established by UBC Literature Etc. in 2007, is a non-profit, culture and arts event, presenting high-quality Taiwanese films. It is also the first large non-profit event in Canada focused on promoting Taiwanese films.
Over the past 11 years, TWFF has presented more than 100 Taiwanese films and invited many filmmakers and directors to entertain the residents in Metro Vancouver. Each year, there have been record-breaking box-office sales and tremendous increase in media coverage. It not only feeds the multiculturalism in Canada but also builds a bridge connecting the art of Taiwanese films with Canada to create an even more diverse community.
In 2009, TWFF was recognized with a proclamation for Taiwanese Film Awareness Day for the duration of the festival. The festival now has a wider audience group from various communities with different cultural backgrounds. Beginning from 2015, TWFF started a collaboration with the “100 Film Fest Project from Taiwan”, by Director Mark Ang, and created a platform for Taiwanese short films in Vancouver.
From the success and improvement of the past TWFF along with the support from many, great Taiwanese films and the efforts of Taiwanese filmmakers are able to spread beyond its borders to even more people from different cultures. TWFF is definitely one of the iconic cultural-exchange events in Canada.
