An ecological film festival hosted by the Forestry Bureau has officially commenced. With 30 films in all, Taiwan’s first film about bees — Bee Taiwan — kicked off the festival on Sept. 24. Films will be shown in 19 cities and counties throughout Taiwan at 57 venues, with more than 1,200 showings in all. For more details, visit bureau’s Web site (www.forest.gov.tw).

On Sept. 24, while sharing his experience of filming Bee Taiwan, movie director Lee Wei-chieh said that, “The mother of the two kids in the documentary actually had a serious altercation with her neighbor because she wanted to preserve the hornets’ nest near her house so that her kids could continue observing and making a record of it. Actually, if you really understand hornets, then you wouldn’t necessarily want to kill them as soon as you see one.”

林務局主辦的二0一三生態電影節正式啟動,共有三十部影片參展,九月二十四日由國內首部以蜂類為題材的《蜂台灣》打頭陣,相關影片將在十九縣市、五十七個場地放映超過一千兩百場次,詳情可上網查詢(www.forest.gov.tw)。

《蜂台灣》導演李偉傑九月二十四日分享拍攝心得,他說:「紀錄片中兩個孩子的媽媽為讓家中的虎頭蜂窩保留下來,讓孩子觀察記錄,還與鄰居發生嚴重衝突。其實如了解蜂類,就不至於一看到虎頭蜂,一定要打死牠們。」
