PIFF selects TSAI Ming Liang as Asian Filmmaker of the Year

2010/09/07 Source

This year's 15th Pusan International Film Festival (PIFF) has selected Taiwanese-Malaysian director TSAI Ming Liang as the recipient of its annual Asian Filmmaker of the Year Award. TSAI is perhaps the most prominent and prolific of Taiwan's 'Second New Wave' film directors that emerged on the international stage in the 90s. TSAI's latest project, The Diary of A Young Boy, is also selected in PIFF's upcoming project market, PPP 2010.

PIFF has been presenting the Asian Filmmaker of the Year Award to Asian filmmakers who realize outstanding projects that improve and develop the Asian film industry and its culture. His most recent feature, Face (2009), shot in and produced by France's Louvre Museum, is like an impressionist painting in motion and is housed in the museum's contemporary collection.

The festival said in a press statement, "His 30-year long devotion to filmmaking has greatly influenced Asian Cinema and made considerable contributions to enhance the global status of Asian Cinema". TSAI's honors include a Golden Lion for Vive L'Amour at the Venice Film Festival in 1994; and the 'Alfred Bauer Award' and 'Silver Bear for Outstanding Artistic Achievement' for The Wayward Cloud at the 2005 Berlin International Film Festival.
