Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival

The Golden Horse Awards was founded in 1962, to promote Taiwanese film production and recognize excellent Taiwanese films and outstanding filmmakers. The Chinese Characters "Golden Horse," pronounced “Jin Ma” in Chinese, were derived from the names of the islands of Jinmen and Matsu. In 1990, the official name of The Golden Horse Awards had then been changed to "Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival," which is not only the most important film event in Taiwan, but includes the Golden Horse Award competition, the Film Project Promotion and the Film Academy. In 2013, the Film Festival celebrated its 50th anniversary by holding 8 Master Talks with Hou Hsiao Hsien, Ang Lee, Tsai Ming Liang, Ann Hui, Ye Lou, Peter Chan, Stanley Kwan and Maggie Cheung.

The Golden Horse Awards encourages the development of Chinese-language films, introduces excellent films from around the world, inspires creativity, and stimulates the exchange of ideas.

On Saturday 1st of November, 60 CCU International Students have attended a one-day excursion to explore some special highlights of Chinese culture in the University’s vicinity. The event started at noon, and the tour took them to three outstanding places of cultural importance: the Hua Shan Creative Park, a traditional tea garden, and the Taipei Eye Opera. Hua Shan Creative Park invites to discover the many arts performances, exhibitions, and delicious treats of Taiwan’s cuisine presented in several halls of the 1914 wine and camphor factories area. In the mountains of Nangang, while enjoying the landscape sceneries of the Taipei basin, students were experiencing the process of tea production, and took part in a DIY course teaching how to make key fob by using herbal tea. Back to Taipei City and after dinner, Taipei Eye Theatre warmly welcomed the students, inviting them to pose for photographs with the lion performers and acrobats.
