Octopus_news-2FIGHTING AIR POLLUTION
by Hung Ju Huang, 18′, Taiwan, 2016
Have you heard of PM2.5? Do you know that air pollution has drawn the world’s attention?
By the end of 2015, people were fighting against air pollution everywhere in Taiwan. So the reporters of “Octopus News” joined the demonstrations with their microphones.
In our capital Taipei, there were over 10,000 people in a demonstration. Parents took their children along in the streets, dressing themselves up and singing beautifully to fight against air pollution.
In Kaohsiung, the industrial city in the southern part of Taiwan, two groups of victims at the ages of 10 and 60 lived on the two sides of a mountain. They had different problems and stories. Facing the huge industrial monster, what do the children think? And what is the prospect that we may have?
Photo 3 ON-2LISTEN TO ME, MADAME PRESIDENT!
by Chou Wen-chin, 18′, Taiwan, 2016
On January 16th, 2016, Taiwan elected a new President, marking the first time in the country’s history that the opposition party won both the presidential race and more than half the seats in the Legislative Yuan. Such a dominant victory stems from the desire of the Taiwanese people for this new President to bring about positive change. Taiwan’s youth, in particular, have very high hopes for the President given that her image has always been aligned with young people. She even had a campaign ad titled “Walking with Children”. In the future, however, will she listen to the suggestions of the voteless children and youths?
We collected the heartfelt voices of children and youths across the country, from indigenous students living on offshore islands to second-generation immigrants in rural areas to high school dropouts. Additionally, seven of our little reporters went through five months of preparations for an opportunity to interview the President about her children and youth policies. How exactly will the President answer them? Can the President’s responses resolve their concerns?

BATKID BEGINS! :  The Power of SOCIAL MEDIA for good : 3:30 pm

Microsoft Word - Batkid Begins Synopsis.docx

We are living through unprecedented times. Times when the people have at their disposal vast power through technology. Power used for nasty and terrible exchanges as we are all to aware of with recent invents. But on the flip-side we also have the power for enormous good. We bring you a documentary about a truly amazing moment of good. Join BAICFF in partnership with Commonsense Media as we explore the power to use social media to change lives for the better with BATKID BEGINS!

Miles

BATKID BEGINS!  by Dana Nachman, 87′, USA, 2015http://vimeo.com/fotograma24

“Batkid Begins” looks at the “why” of this flash phenomenon. Why did the intense outpouring of spontaneous support for a child reverberate among the world and become one of the biggest good news stories ever? The film explores what happens when an event goes viral, and reveals surprising truths about what happens when a nerve is touched in our digital society. Will the Greater Bay Area Make-A-Wish Foundation fulfill its mission to help Miles reclaim his childhood after battling disease for more than half his short life?

In the end, the film leaves audiences to decide: did Miles need the world for inspiration? Or did the world need Miles?

we will open up theater 2 – the planetarium – if it is needed for overflow but will only be able to screen the film in that theater.
