Wi Ding Ho
Wi Ding Ho was born in Malaysia and is based in Taipei. He graduated with a degree in film from the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU. His first feature film Pinoy Sunday (funded and supported by NHK, Japan) screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, garnered a pair of awards at Taipei International Film Festival and also won Wi Ding a Best New Director Award from the prestigious Golden Horse Award in Taiwan.

Wi Ding’s previous short film Summer Afternoon premiered at the 2008 edition of the Directors’ Fortnight of the Cannes Film Festival. It was the only Asian film selected in the category that year. Since then Summer Afternoon has played at other major festivals across the globe; the Pusan International Film Festival and the Rotterdam International Film Festival, among them.

Respire, the short film that preceded Summer Afternoon, premiered at the International Critics’ Week, of the Cannes Film Festival in 2005. Here it won the Kodak Discovery award and the TV5 (very) Young critics Award. The following year Respire clocked in with the Best Fantasy Short Film Award at SITGES International Fantasy Film Festival and a Special Jury Award at the Taipei International Film Festival.

Wi Ding also directs documentaries for network Television in Taiwan. Notable among his work in this genre are Museum without walls (commissioned by the National Palace Museum) and Man behind Giant (a profile for Discovery Channel).
