Golden Horse Classic Film Festival:  Retrospective: Krzysztof Kieślowski (GHCFF)】2023 GHCFF took place from July 21st to August 10th in Taipei, & August 2nd to 13rd in Taichung.

Based on the concept of "Classic Films from around the World,” the film festival selects a representative director or a representative region or theme per year. The film festival originated from the 2018 centenary of Ingmar Bergman and was launched in August of that year as the "Bergman Centennial Retrospective" showcasing 38 directorial works. After receiving great acclaim, it was officially named the "Golden Horse Classic Film Festival (GHCFF)" . In 2019,  the "Golden Horse Classic Film Festival: Voyage to Italy" was introduced. This concept was inspired by the documentary film "Il Mio Viaggio in Italia" by renowned director Martin Scorsese. The festival showcased 37 classic films mentioned in the documentary, including works by Rossellini, De Sica, Visconti, Antonioni, Fellini, Alessandro Blasetti, and Pietro Germi, among others. It featured numerous precious copies and 4K digital restoration versions, including several films premiering in Taiwan. In 2020, coinciding with the centenary of Italian maestro Federico Fellini (1920-1993), the GHCFF participated in the global "Fellini 100" tribute project. The "2020 GHCFF: Fellini 100," presents the complete collection of Fellini's 24 films, with almost 90% being newly restored 4K digital versions. The 2022 edition: "The Golden Age of Czechoslovak Cinema" focuses on the period from 1960 to 1970, known as the golden age of Czechoslovak cinema, which was hailed as a miracle in the film industry. The festival showcases 32 feature films by 27 renowned Czechoslovak directors such as Jiří Menzel, Miloš Forman, and Věra Chytilová. Additionally, it includes six animated short films by masters like Jiří Trnka and Karel Zeman. This retrospective is the largest-scale showcase of Czechoslovak cinema ever held in Taiwan.


In 2023, we once again collaborate with the Taichung Film and Television Development Fund in Taipei and Taichung during July and August to host the 2023 GHCFF: "Retrospective: Krzysztof Kieślowski", which features screenings of 43 films by Polish master Krzysztof Kieślowski, spanning across feature films, documentaries, short films, and unprecedented "television theater" works. In addition to the extended documentary Still Alive: A Film About Krzysztof Kieslowski,this will be the largest and most extensive Kieślowski retrospective ever held in Taiwan. Even the well-known The Double Life of Veronique and the "Three Colors" trilogy, consisting of Blue, White, and Red, will be introduced for the first time in the latest 4K digital restoration versions.
