Off to the Taiwan International Animation Festival!

I'm madly scrambling to prepare for my trip to Taipei, Taiwan to attend the Taiwan International Animation Festival starting this week. They will be screening my film, "What Are You Anyways?" I am leaving to Taiwan Sept. 25th and returning on October the 7th. I was fortunate to acquire funding for the trip through the Canada Council for Arts Media Travel Grant which helps cover the cost of flights and accomodations. While I am there, my schedule has become pretty hectic filled with delivering guest lectures at Taiwan universities, attending screenings, question and answer periods, gala parties, special film events, animation studio tours, and participating in panel discussions.

Here is a look at my Taiwan schedule so far:
