Since we have missed the Autumn season, it’s time to catch up with the regular screenings. We are preparing in Taipei for the 2013/14 Winter. It’s been a cold & wet winter here so far, will be looking forward to some cozy movie night with friends.
We are holding the event at the same place we’ve always been, Insomnia Cafe, it’s a small but very friendly location. Can seat about 40-45 people if we really try (and in the last few seasons we did have full house). Hope to have better subtitling, want to prepare the computer better, and hope to try a few different things to make the organization smoother.
The event is on February 22, Saturday, afternoon. The time is to-be-announced. Can see the event page on Facebook.
