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!)
