The 2022 Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) will kick off on April 14-24, 2022, with 6 Taiwanese films, including Moneyboys, Listen Before You Sing, Execution in Autumn, Night Bus, Part Forever, and Tank Fairy. The films will be screened in person and available virtually for the whole festival.
Among the highlights are the films Listen Before You Sing, which reflects on the regional disparities in education through melodious singing by indigenous people; Moneyboys, which depicts a story of gay romance and was selected for Cannes and Hawaii International Film Festival; the classic work of 1972, Execution in Autumn, was the winner of 5 Golden Horse Awards including Best Feature Film; the horror animated short film Night Bus, winner of the Short Film Jury Award: Animation of the 2022 Sundance Film Festival. The spotlight also features two short films: the queer work Tank Fairy was selected for this year's SXSW Film Festival; Part Forever, which confronts the darkness of humanity and was selected for the Sitges Film Festival of Spain. This year, the Taiwanese films for selection are attention-grabbing, digging deeper into multiple topics.
Founded in 1976, SIFF is among the top film festivals in North America traditionally attracting nearly 150,000 attendees to celebrate films from more than 80 countries.
