For the 11th straight year, SDAFF presents the Taiwan Film Showcase, the largest annual spotlight on Taiwan cinema in North America. The showcase is sponsored by the UCSD Taiwan Studies Lecture Series, UCSD Chuan Lyu Endowed Chair in Taiwan Studies, the Taiwan Academy Los Angeles, and the Taiwan Ministry of Culture. All screenings are free for UCSD students, faculty, and staff with ID at the UCSD Price Center Theater ticketing table. Ticketing table is open between 12-5pm on Saturday, November 5 and Sunday, November 6.
Join us at noon on Sunday, Nov. 6 for a free screening of shorts from our Reel Voices documentary filmmaking program, which empowers high school students to become socially-conscious storytellers—tackling topics like beauty standards, heritage, and activism, in stories that are both personal and deeply relevant to the broader San Diego community.
The screening of 80 YEARS LATER is FREE for Pac Arts members. To receive your free member ticket, please visit the UltraStar ticketing/concession stand on November 7. Members will also be able to redeem their free ticket(s) online by using the code found in the general membership e-newsletter. For assistance, email email@example.com
