Formosa Betrayed Ending in Seattle; Shows in Taiwan in August

Got a press release from the Formosa Betrayed Facebook group a few days ago. Great news for those in Taiwan, it's headed your way in early August! They are also planning a DVD release for this summer (sort of odd that they might release a DVD before showing in Taiwan, but in the end I doubt it will impact the numbers in Taiwan that much).

Here's an excerpt from the Facebook "press release," on the Taiwan release:


Formosa Films and Screen Media Ventures are proud to announce an agreement with IPA Asia Pacific and Sky Digi Entertainment Co for theatrical distribution of Formosa Betrayed in TAIWAN!!!! Since before the film was completed, thousands of fans have been wondering when the film will be released in Taiwan. Now, we are excited to announce that the film is scheduled to be in Taiwanese theaters beginning the weekend of August 6, 2010.

Actor/writer/producer Will Tiao, director Adam Kane, and several of the actors from the film have been invited to promote the film in Taiwan prior to its release. Please find attached the official press release in Mandarin Chinese and English that has been released to media outlets in Taiwan, the United States, and worldwide. Any press inquiries regarding the Taiwan release of Formosa Betrayed should be directed in the United States to Michael Dwyer at Screen Media Ventures at (212) 308-1790 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting (212) 308-1790 end_of_the_skype_highlighting and in Taiwan to Tiffany Wang at Sky Digi Entertainment at 886-2-2231-1010.
Here's the rest of the press release, including information on how you can request to see Formosa Betrayed at a theater near you (if your city wasn't on the original release schedule).

Also, this is the last week for Formosa Betrayed in Seattle (showing only at the AMC Loews Uptown 3).

For those who have or have not seen it and would like a preview (minor spoilers, but not really) on what I thought of it, here's my review of Formosa Betrayed.
