Taiwanese films will be screened for the first time at the 35th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) beginning Sunday in Goa.

Taiwan is participating in the 'Country Focus' programme of the festival by screening five films under the banner 'Taiwan Cinema'.

Taiwanese films are known for being unconventional and for their realistic depiction of local life, besides their technical superiority and innovative narrative techniques.

The films that will be screened during the festival are: Bear Hug by Shau-di Wang, Blue Gate Crossing by Chin-yeh Yee, Formula-17 by Ying-jung Chen, Good Bye Dragon Inn by Ming-liang Tsai and The Missing by Kang-shen Lee.

"Taiwan's participation in IFFI would surely strengthen the India-Taiwan relations and would also serve as the platform for those who wish to get acquainted with the island's known cinema," the Taipei Economic and Cultural Centre here said in a statement.
