HFT: Taiwanese American Film Festival Grand Jury Prize!

Hello From Taiwan won the Grand Jury Prize at the Taiwanese American Film Festival! Thank you so much to this festival that means so much to this film personally. The Taiwanese American film community is special and wish it could’ve been in person this year: the Taiwanese food and boba at the festival was always delicious. (And thanks to Ho Chie Tsai for sending me a screenshot for proof that we won!)

Their theme of KINDRED this year means we’ve rounded up a few cast and crew family photos:

Cast - Brandilyn Cheah

Description: 2016/ Paradise Cove/ family beach outing (including grandparents and brandilyn’s aunt and uncle; we encourage weekly outdoor play that involves the entire family (and downtime from electronics))


Producer - Guo Guo

Cast - Janet Hsieh
