Taoyuan City has a vast territory with a diverse and particularly youthful population; a vibrant city that supports a wide range of industrial and commercial activities. The Taoyuan Film Festival was founded with the premise of cultivating an interest in cinema, building an audience whom the Festival gives access to films that might not been otherwise screened in local movie theaters. One of the distinguish features of the Festival is its devotion to showcasing the achievement of the Taiwanese cinema through the inclusion of the Taiwanese Filmmaker in Focus section, and awards designated for Taiwanese talents in the documentary film competition section. In addition, the Festival is also dedicated to Asian documentary films from all regions, providing a platform to filmmakers across Asia to exchange ideas and experiences with the local audience. The Taoyuan Film Festival cordially invites everyone with an open mind and soul to celebrate the omnipresence of cinema in our everyday lives.
