TAP-Seattle would like to use the Seattle Taiwanese American Film Festival (STAFF) as a platform for aspiring Taiwanese American filmmakers to showcase their films. We are proud to present four short films that were featured at last year’s Taiwanese American Film Festival in Los Angeles, hosted by TAP-LA.

Four female protagonists encountered various life challenges – from being an Asian in a segregated America, adapting to a new country, working abroad, facing death and family affairs later in life. These stories from West to East showcase women’s journey through society, family, workplace, and love. The short films featured are: June, Jie Jie, Midnight Carnival, and Guo Mie.

**There will be a panel discussion following the screening of the four short films.

Director: Various
