About Taiwan Pride Film Festival

Zatori Films, in collaboration with the Taipei Economic & Cultural Office in Chicago (TECO), cordially invites you to the inaugural Taiwan Pride Film Festival Chicago. This event will showcase an exciting lineup of films, aiming to showcase the rich diversity of Taiwan's film industry while promoting LGBTQ+ visibility and pride.
Notably, Taiwan made history on May 24, 2019, by becoming the first country in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage, making a significant milestone for marriage equality in the region.
The Taiwan Pride Film Festival Chicago will take place on June 29, 2024, at CineCity Studios during Pride Month. We carefully curated a selection of LGBTQ+ films from Taiwan to screen, ensuring the festival will captivate audiences with unique perspectives and powerful storytelling.
