Hey Taiwan, Get Ready for Urban Nomad 2015!

We are happy to announce Urban Nomad's dates and events for 2015. The festival has expanded to a longer format. Instead of an all too quick 10 days in the theater, this year events will cover a full month. We will kick off on April 17 with a special event, with special events every weekend until we finally occupy the comfortable seats of Ximen's LUX Cinema from May 8 to 17.

Highlights include our annual opening party on Saturday, April 18, which has grown to a stand-alone full-day music festival, with 8 bands, 5 DJs and the surprises the Urban Nomad Party is known for. But basically we are doing this because we believe alternative environments are extremely valuable and make for great events. Not only are they better for socializing, they also allow more experimental events and hybrid events, such as films together with live performances, or.... there are announcements coming soon, and they will be exciting.

The films will be the same high standard of international documentary and indie film you have grown accustomed to, as well as the best of Taiwan. The international section will feature more than 20 Taiwan premiers. The competition section is for the first time open to feature films, and we will host several world premiers of feature films. Submissions of short films and music videos numbered around 300, including lots of outstanding work. The jury will include an international curator from a top US film festival, which will not only bring a new set of eyes to evaluate Taiwanese films, it will also provide the potential for screening outside Taiwan.

The basic info is below. We look forward to seeing you all at the 2015 Urban Nomad Film Fest!
