CHUNG Shefong is a producer and curator who regularly organizes a number of music and film festivals in Taiwan. In 1993, she founded Trees Music and Art, an independent folk and grassroots music record label that has nurtured some of the most vital Taiwanese music artists of today. In 2001, she started the Migration Music Festival, a major platform in Taiwan for folk and global music that embraces artistic experimentation and social activism. The festival is also known for bringing attention to social and cultural issues both locally and globally. She has also initiated the annual documentary film event New Narratives Film Festival and One Film, One Journey, a campus film forum on Southeast Asian independent films. Her current efforts include international projects that connect Southeast Asian musicians, artists, filmmakers and academics. As a filmmaker, Chung gained acclaim for her first documentary, ""From Border to Border,"" which traces the history of Chinese immigrants in India. The film was nominated and selected for screening at several international film festivals, and won first prize at the 2014 Taiwan International Women Make Waves Film Festival. Chung currently teaches at the College of Communication at the National Chengchi University.
