There are four movies from New Southbound Policy countries that are going to be played at Kaohsiung Municipal Social Education Hall, including films from Thailand, Indonesia, India, and Vietnam.

The first movie that will be featured is the Thai heist thriller film called "Bad Genius" (模犯生). It tells the story about a genius high school student called Lynn who helps students to cheat on exams. The movie broke records for being the highest grossing Thai film in Taiwan last year, and grossed NT$1 billion dollars (US$32,576,000) at Taiwan's box office.

The film festival is organized by the Kaohsiung Municipal Social Education Center, China Steel Corporation and Sheng Yu Steel Co. Ltd, with the hope of enhancing Taiwanese understanding of Southeast Asian culture, society, and history through different perspectives presented through film.

The other films includes "Stanley's Tiffin Box" (史丹利的便當盒) (India) on Sept. 1, "Filosofi Kopi" (歡迎光臨哲學咖啡館) (Indonesia) on Sept. 9, and "Sunny Love" (那些年,我們愛的女孩) (Vietnam) on Sept. 15. Registration for each film is open two weeks before screening.

午後大暴雨! 天母棒球場淹水秒變天母水池

Published on Aug 17, 2018
今天(17號)下午台北地區下暴雨,因為午後對流旺盛的關係,雨下得又強又大,天母地區的街道有稍微淹水,好險水已經退去,但是天母棒球場可沒這麼幸運了,這雨一來,球員休息室全部淹水,工作人員趕快舀水讓水排出去,也因為這樣導致原本的棒球賽得改期再打。

Torrential rain causes flooding across Taipei area

Taipei and New Taipei declare 13 districts at risk


By Matthew Strong,Taiwan News, Staff Writer
2018/09/08 19:35





TAIPEI (Taiwan News) - At least one motorcyclist was reported injured in Taipei City as torrential rain overwhelmed the streets and caused flooding across the capital Saturday evening.

The government texted messages to residents’ smartphones to warn them of the coming onslaught, but even then many were caught outside.

In Ximending, one of Taipei’s most popular destinations for locals and tourists alike on weekends, water suddenly shot several floors high, throwing a motorcyclist off his vehicle, the Central News Agency reported.

On the other side of town, close to the fashionable Xinyi shopping district, Keelung Road had “turned into the Keelung River,” a resident noted online. Traffic on Zhongxiao East Road section 4, known for its concentration of department stores and boutiques, was stuck

There were reports of floods from 161 locations in the capital, but also from the surrounding New Taipei City area and from Keelung City on the north coast.

A total of 13 districts in Taipei and New Taipei were declared in danger of serious and immediate flooding, reports said. Residents had called in news about flooding from a wide range of major streets, including Keelung Road section 3, Xinyi Road section 2, Songjiang Road and Tianmu East Road. On Lianyun Street, water stood 30 cm high, while at Dongmen Mass Rapid Transit Station, water had to be pumped out onto the street. Otherwise, MRT services proceeded normally, reports said.

On a wider scale, neighboring Keelung but also Kaohsiung City and Pingtung County in the far south were warned about the likelihood of torrential rain, CNA reported.

An extreme torrential rain advisory is in force for Keelung City, as rainfall is expected to exceed 500 millimeters over a 24 hour period. The torrential rain today continues from yesterday, which saw flooding throughout Taipei.

Police told CNA at midday that some of the flooding has subsided and some sections of nearby road are open to traffic.

Some parts of Keelung were flooded on two separate occasions this morning, reported the Liberty Times. As of 7.00 a.m. on Sept. 9, 24 emergencies in Keelung were reported to authorities, reported Apple Daily.

Keelung Mayor Lin Yu-chang (林右昌) surveyed the flooded areas this morning, and said that public works to improve the storm water system will be expedited, amongst some criticism about the speed of the current effort.

Taiwan’s Kaohsiung Center for the Arts touted as new cultural attraction in Asia


By Huang Tzu-ti,Taiwan News, Staff Writer
2018/09/06 14:24



(Taiwan News) – The National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts – Weiwuying – is joining the National Theater & Concert Hall in Taipei and the National Taichung Theater as the three cultural landmarks of Taiwan to catapult the country onto the world stage of arts, declared the Ministry of Culture on Sept. 4.

Weiwuying, the largest world-class performance venue in Southern Taiwan, is slated for inauguration on October 13, following 15 years of construction at a cost of over NT$10.7 billion, reported CNA.

Ever since its conception in 2003, Weiwuying has been entrusted with the task of transforming Kaohsiung from an industrial harbor city to a hub of vibrant cultural activity and allowing it to emerge as a new cultural attraction in Asia, remarked Minister of Culture Cheng Li-chiun (鄭麗君).​

Weiwuying will strive to accomplish the ambitious goal of drawing 250,000 visitors within a year after its opening, noted Ju Tzong-ching (朱宗慶), chairman of the National Performing Arts Center, which oversees the operations of the three major arts centers in Taipei, Taichung, and Kaohsiung.

The government of Kaohsiung has spearheaded the effort to drive the momentum for creating a cultural scene in the city by holding festivals and other events, reckoned Acting Mayor of Kaohsiung Hsu Li-ming (許立明).

Located along the East-West line of the Kaohsiung Metro, Weiwuying connects Pier-2 Art Center, Maritime Cultural & Popular Music Center, Kaohsiung Cultural Center, and Dadong Arts Center to form a dynamic corridor of arts, Hsu added.

Designed by Dutch architect Francine Houben, Weiwuying incorporates the elements of ocean and banyan trees. The 141,000 square meter complex houses a 2,250-seat opera hall and 2,000-seat concert hall, reported Wallpaper.

Kaohsiung Short Film Competition names 65 finalists

Staff writer, with CNA

Sixty-five entries from 30 nations have been selected for this year’s Kaohsiung International Film Festival’s Short Film Competition, organizers said on Thursday.

The organizers said they received 3,203 submissions from 93 nations and that after a four-month selection period, 65 were picked to compete for the total prize pool of NT$1.1 million (US$35,680).

Some of the 65 have been entered in other international film festivals, including the Cannes Film Festival, the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the Locarno International Film Festival, the Short Shorts Film Festival & Asia and the Busan International Film Festival, the statement said.

The Kaohsiung festival is divided into international and Taiwanese categories, with 20 selected for the Taiwanese category, including one by Ying Liang (應亮) — an independent Chinese filmmaker in exile in Hong Kong — that was entered in this year’s International Film Festival Rotterdam.

Also in the Taiwanese category is Jiejie by Taiwanese-American director Fiona Feng-I Roan (阮鳳儀), which was one of the three finalists at the HBO Asian Pacific American Visionaries short film competition.

Others in the Taiwanese category are Scissors and the Cat, a short documentary by director Hou Chi-jan (侯季然), and Magician on the Roof, starring actress Wu Ke-xi (吳可熙).

The 45 short films in the international competition include Australia’s All These Creatures, Brazil’s The Orphan, Poland’s Tremors and Italy’s Magic Alps.

To encourage domestic film producers, four new awards have been added to the Taiwanese category, while a new award in the international division is to be handed out for a film from Asia, the organizers said.

Screenings at the Kaohsiung International Film Festival are to be held from Oct. 19 to Nov. 14 at the Kaohsiung Main Public Library, Cinemark Theaters and the Kaohsiung Film Archive.
