A world in pieces: The films to be shown in the 40th Forum as part of the official programme of the 60th Berlinale

user
In its 40th year, the Berlinale Forum features a selection of films that capture the mood of the times in a sensitive way. Rarely have there been, in feature films and documentaries alike, as many people caught in insolvable conflicts, faced with essential decisions or staring into the abyss as in this year's selection of films.   Domestic filmmaking makes its presence felt in the programme in a manner exciting, varied and surprising in its strength.

Urban Nomad Film Fest

Urban Nomad Film Fest is the oldest and best known underground film festival in Taiwan. It was founded in Taipei in 2002, and the ongoing project is to create a community-oriented film environment and put an end to the impersonal ‘black box’ movie theater environment where hundreds of people can watch films without really interacting with each other. We tend to hold festival screenings and events in warehouses, outdoor spaces and converted spaces, rather than traditional film theaters. Peripheral events include concerts, parties, discussion seminars and directors talks.

Urban Nomad's festival content is socially motivated, growing with and out of digital and grassroots film movements: underground, alternative, digital, arthouse, DVcam, Flash, and web-based films. Our program is evenly split between Taiwanese indie shorts (open submission) and international, independent documentaries and features (feel free to contact us).
