Taipei Tech Film Festival: Technology and Arts

 

National Taipei University of Technology held its first film festival, “Technology and Arts”, as the prelude to the celebration for the 107th anniversary. The film festival was co-hosted by General Education Center, Arts and Cultural Center, and the Department of English. During the festival, the audience would be introduced to aspects of film production before it reaches the big screen, beginning with the development of a screenplay, music, choreography, voice acting, digital remastering, and many other production details. The festival lasted for five days from 15th through 19th Oct. and was open to all for free.

 

 

The festival premiered the remastered version of Xue Ping Kui and Wang Bao Chuan on the first day, giving special prominence to digital remastering featured in this event. Xue Ping Kui and Wang Bao Chuan, the first 35 mm film performed in Taiwanese language, was a blockbuster in 1956 when it struck 1.5 million at the box office within one month after it was released. The classic was able to be screened again after the missing film strip was retrieved, repaired and remastered in 2013.

 “Taipei Tech is known for its technology legacy,” said Dr. Yi Wen Cheng, at General Education Center, and Dr. Louis Lo at Department of English. “Today, this film festival at Taipei Tech marks the prominence of a new creation of technology embodied through arts and humanities, and the chemistry intertwined within.“

“Taipei tech boasts its 107-year history, with the Red House and the Hallway of the first academic building registered as the Historical Sites,” said Sea-Fue Wang, President of Taipei Tech. “The vintage and classic films broadcast during Taipei Tech Film Festival: Technology and Arts would make a perfect match with Taipei Tech’s historic heritage.”National Taipei University of Technology held its first film festival, “Technology and Arts”, as the prelude to the celebration for the 107th anniversary.
