Introducing Joy International Film Festival (JIFF), a new community event based in Taichung, Taiwan that celebrates positive cinema from around the world. JIFF aspires to be a place where young and old and alike can come to enjoy uplifting stories of the human spirit that highlight love, courage, compassion, and family, just to name a few examples.

悅影國際影展(JIFF)是台灣台中全新的在地盛事,主要表揚來自全球的正向積極主題電影。此影展希望能打造一個不論老少皆能前來欣賞的電影空間,在這個大螢幕上將會播放令人振奮的故事、人類靈魂深處的各種愛、堅毅、憐憫,家庭議題,及各類相關議題。

We invite you to come and have fun with us on November 3, 2018 as we delight in new films from around the globe that will make us laugh, cry, hope, and cheer. Come and join us as we take a walk on the bright side.

我們誠摯地邀請您,於2018年11月3日,前來與我們共享來自全球的的短片,一起歡笑、流淚、燃起希望並受到鼓舞。來加入我們尋找良善的旅程。

Joy International Film Festival began as a simple collaboration between local Taichung film buffs and Fengyuan Senior High School. They were looking for a way to bring the community together through culturally rich entertainment that would also provide a platform for voices from around the globe. A film festival was the ideal vehicle for sharing the broad panorama of positive human experiences from all parts of the world that, not surprisingly, reveal how much we all have in common.

悅影國際影展(JIFF) 起源於台中在地的電影愛好者與豐原高中的跨界合作。這群人希望能透過豐富的文化呈現,帶領豐原當地的發展,同時提供一個讓世界各地人們能發聲的平台。舉辦影展是個理想的方式,讓創作者跟觀眾分享來自世界各地的人生觀和啟發人心的生命經驗,並且點出我們彼此的共同之處。

JIFF is pleased to announce the 2018 categories accepting submissions. Selected videos will receive certificates engraved “Joy International Film Festival.” Other prizes will be made available to filmmakers who attend the festival.

2018年第一屆悅影國際影展(JIFF)已正式開始收件。獲選影片將獲得悅影國際影展(JIFF)的入選證明,參賽者並將得到其他合宜的獎項。

    I am very glad to receive the award at the joy international film festival in Taiwan. joy international film festival is a very beautiful film festival, no matter professional communication or warm reception, let me linger. This trip to Taiwan has made me feel the beauty, food and beauty of the island. I really want to make my next film here. Within hours of leaving Taiwan, I had already begun to miss the place.
