  • The 2022 Taiwan Pitch Nonfiction Short Film Fund invites students worldwide to tell their unique Taiwan stories by combining aesthetics, innovation, and new media techniques to create short films that allow the world to see Taiwan from different perspectives and viewpoints.

     

    We welcome proposals of 7-15 minutes long nonfiction films presented entirely in English. Finalists will receive a 10,000 USD funding for film production and a fixed reimbursement for travel expenses to participate in the "Talent Village" workshop held in Taiwan. Three films will be selected as outstanding works to receive cash awards of 10,000 USD, 8,000 USD and 6,000 USD, respectively.

     

    The program also invites industry professionals to serve as mentors, offering finalists support and advice during the production. The final films will premiere on TaiwanPlus, an international streaming platform. Through its official website and app, audiences worldwide can access the stories supported by this program.
