2015 Urban Nomad in Photos

The Taipei leg of the Urban Nomad Film Fest came to a close on May 17, closing five weekends of events. So far, it has been Urban Nomad’s most successful year yet, with more than 20 international film directors, producers, festival organizers and musicians traveling to Taiwan for festival events and the festival’s strongest ever film lineup, including 23 feature films making their Taiwan premiers. These included 19 international films and 4 locally made feature-length films — the local films were also world premiers. The festival also broke its attendance record, with more than 7,000 people attending screenings, parties and events and more than 1 million media impressions generated. Films included 20 international documentaries, two locally produced feature films, a selection of short films from Hong Kong’s Sunflower Movement, a shorts compilation from Berlin’s Interfilm festival, six short film programs, and three locally produced documentary feature films. The competition awarded NT$60,000 in cash prizes in five different categories (best film, best short, best animation, best music video, audience choice award).
