The inaugural 2020 Freedom Crossing Film Festival (FCFF) will kick off on November 6th, presenting 13 Taiwanese films to showcase Taiwan's journey toward democracy and freedom, as well as the diversity and inclusiveness of Taiwan’s society.

All the films are available in the United States and Canada. 

The festival will open with the remastered classic Wheel of Life(大輪迴,1983), a pioneering film about a love triangle spanning three lifetimes, transcending the borders of time and space. The film illustrates the theme of the first week -- “Crossing Borders and Identities,” under which the festival will also screen ISVARA The Art and Life of Yu-Yu YANG(呦呦自在楊英風, 2018) and The Immortals’ Play(神戲, 2016) to offer a glimpse into the lives of artists who live in different countries.
