Taiwan International Queer Film Festival
Established in 2014, is organized by Taiwan International Media and Education Association (TIMEA). With the belief that the power of films and media can help to create this bond, Taiwan International Queer Film Festival aims to establish ourselves as the premier LGBT film festival in all of Asia. It is important not only to present to the Taiwanese people LGBT films from around the globe, but also to showcase the best Taiwanese queer cinema on the international stage. This will be the start toward a better understanding of the visions of the world.
Honored to be in Queer East, with many classics and modern LGBT+ films of East Asia, including the story inspiration of Undercurrent, LAN YU. It's our European Premiere. The film will be showed on location in London.
Queer East Film Festival
Launched in 2020, Queer East is a new film festival that aims to amplify the voices of Asian communities in the UK, who have often been excluded from mainstream discourse, despite Asians being one of the country’s fastest-growing ethnic groups. Queer East seeks to facilitate a better understanding of the richness of queer Asian heritage, and to bridge the cultural distance between the UK public and the region. Featuring works made by international filmmakers and Asian diaspora communities, and looking to foster authentic voices, the festival explores a wide range of perspectives, showcasing stories that intersect with personal experiences, cultural norms, and socio-political transitions.
We would like to present 3 short films that LVC has produced in the past decade, THE DOUBLE, BEHIND THE SCENES and UNDERCURRENT, in one screening which will be hold by FFIFA and Taichung Library next Saturday. Speed up your reservation, there's only 30 quotas to the digital screening room with Q&A. Our founder will also talk about her experiences on international co-production and using Taiwanese language in cinema.
FFIFA, Formosa Festival of International Filmmaker Awards
It is a young film festival based in Taichung, Taiwan, and dedicated to providing filmmakers an international platform for networking, sharing, and exchange for filmmaking resources and experience, focusing on the environment, encouraging various new types of visual creating, connecting independent filmmakers from both Taiwan and the rest of the world.
Since we have launched our sibling brand "Cabine de la Lumière" (光庵), we're thinking about how to emerge the services into one, so the Chinese name "光庵" remains with "LA VIE CINE", here the new logo "光庵 LA VIE CINE" comes in a rush!
You still could see the grey old logo of LA VIE CINE in our past works, yet the site and social accounts will use the new one for future marketing. The big change would be the official Facebook page turns into 光庵-LA VIE CINE, make sure you "like!" us for the upcoming news.
We're selected in two of the Top 5 LGBT film festivals of the world!!!
