We are a non-profit film festival organized by students from the English Department at National Dong Hwa University in Taiwan. This film festival aims to invite films that address the issue of LGBTQ aging. Taiwan has officially become an aged society and there have been a lot of effort both in the public and private sectors trying to cope with the challenge related to aging. Yet, not much has been talked about in relation to LGBTQ elders. Therefore, we plan to curate a film festival that shows films representing LGBTQ elders, including but not limited to alternative lifestyles, the stories of transition about sexuality and identity, and encounters with illness and death. It is our hope that this festival can trigger further discussion among local LGBTQ audiences about leading a life in later years.
