Celebrating community in four small films

The writers and directors of Filmmaker Nights Taipei: Short Film Development Project took the call for expat stories to heart, and shared that heart with their peers

By Kayleigh Madjar  /  Staff reporter

And these ideas will be given a chance to be realized next year, as Filmmaker Nights plans to collaborate with the festival again and produce another set of shorts. The opportunity will also be given to first-time directors to take the helm.

If next year is too long to wait, the 48-hour film project is coming up (likely in October), for which Filmmaker Nights will be fielding a team and encourages participation.

These small, but spirited projects show that expats are bursting with the desire to show this little community that they are not alone in their struggles, or simply that a little community is there, built on garbage trucks and knowing glances.

Due to the nature of the project and regulations governing the shorts’ future festival lives, only Chancy’s Big Night and Too Sweet are available for temporary online viewing.
