TAPETUM LUCIDUM 2024 – The 8th Taiwan International Cat Film Festival

TAPETUM LUCIDUM 2024 – The 8th Taiwan International Cat Film Festival is co-curated by Ming-Yu Lee and Yung-Hao Liu. As the first cat-themed art film festival in Asia and Taiwan, this year’s event is officially entering its eighth year. This year’s selection includes Claude Ciccolella, one of the founders of IMAGES CONTRE NATURE, a major French experimental film festival, and his cat Wallaby, as well as a special edition of his award-winning film Under Desert in 2023, and Spanish artist Esperanza Collado, who has been working on a film for over a decade. British prose filmmakers and prose film studies professors Kayla Parker and Stuart Moore with their cats Charles and Winky; American filmmaker Marty Hamrick; Spanish filmmaker Santiago Estruch Mansanet; Chinese American Professor (teaching at the University of Massachusetts Boston) and experimental film artist Wenhua Shi. In addition, this year we have invited a number of emerging experimental film and video artists: Eli Shi, Zhu Xiangsheng, Zhou Jung-Ching, Chang Chin-Chieh, Chang Xuechen, Kuo Chunyen, Huang Yu Ti, Liou Yi-Hong, and Tsai Yu-Hsuan.

Newly emerged street cats take a lazy nap on rooftops in the rare sunshine. The Cat Film Festival is back in 2024 after on hiatus for a year. We look forward to the exciting program.
