FFIFA, Formosa Festival of International Filmmaker Awards, is one of the major film festival under TIFFA, Taiwan International Film Festival Association organized by Mark Ang, as well as WOFFF, Windows of Formosa Film Festival. Unlike WOFFF, which is dedicated to awarding and promoting Taiwanese indie filmmakers to the world, the main goal of FFIFA is to provide filmmakers an international platform for networking, sharing and exchange for filmmaking resources and experience. By means of gathering talented filmmakers and showcasing independent films, we hope the filmmakers from all over the world can get to know more about Taiwan and gain more creative inspiration and filmmaking partners by eating, moving, living, networking and watching films in this beautiful island.

福爾摩沙國際電影節(FFIFA)與福爾摩沙電影櫥窗(WOFFF)同為百大影展計畫(100 FilmFEST Projecdt)旗下影展。不同於福爾摩沙電影櫥窗(WOFFF)致力於將作品推廣至全世界,福爾摩沙國際電影獎(FFIFA)宗旨在於吸引全球優秀電影人聚集到台灣,希望可以讓各國的電影導演互相交流,建立更大的創作網路。基於這個精神,FFIFA不但開放全球徵件,更希望影展期間,全球電影創作者可以藉著在影展城市移動、生活、交流的過程中,獲得更多靈感與創作夥伴。

FFIFA will be held together with WOFFF in the end of December, 2017. Besides the must have award ceremony and the screenings, we’ve programed red carpet, opening ceremony, after screening panel, opening and closing party, seminars, workshops, filmmaking gear and software exhibits, local cultural tour, etc. The whole event will be an extraordinary, intellectual, honorable, relaxing and fulfilling trip for filmmakers.

FFIFA將於2017年12月底與WOFFF合併舉辦,我們除了最重要的頒獎典禮以及放映會之外,更有紅毯採訪、映後座談、交流酒會、開幕式、工作坊、人才媒合會、專題論壇、攝影器材展、在地小旅行等結合創作、藝文、影視創作等相關的活動。

Taiwan is one of the most creative and advanced countries in the world. Taiwanese directors such as Ang Lee, Hsiao-Hsien Hou, Edward Yang and Ming-liang Tsai are internationally well known. Besides filmmaking, many other industries in Taiwan are in the World Top 10 such as the global recognized yacht builders, the 2015 World’s Best Whisky Award winner Kavalan, the worldwide household ASUS, Acer, Garmin and HTC, etc. Above all, Taichung is the most potential international city for filmmaking in Taiwan. Ang Lee and his production and visual effect teams spent 2 years staying in Taichung and produced the Oscar winning “Life of Pi”. And the Taichung Cinematic Park has already broken ground and will be finished within two years. Besides, the three major national art and cultural organizations are located here including National Taichung Opera Theater, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts and the National Library of Public Information.

台灣是世界上最有創意與先進的國家之一,台灣有許多世界知名的電影導演如李安、侯孝賢、楊德昌、蔡明亮等,台灣的許多產業都在世界排名中,如前十大的遊艇製造業;2015年的全球最佳葛瑪蘭威士忌;全球知名的電子品牌ASUS、Acer、Garmin、HTC等。其中台中又是台灣最具國際影視潛力的拍攝城市,不僅曾經是李安得獎作品《少年Pi的奇幻漂流》的製作基地,更是未來台灣影視基地的落腳處,台中擁有豐富的文化資產與藝文資源,台灣各大國際級藝文單位諸如台灣國家歌劇院、台灣國立美術館以及台灣國立資訊圖書館都位於台中,除此之外,台灣更有蓬勃發展的藝術空間、文創活動,提供藝術家豐沛的創作資源。

If you want to meet filmmakers from all over the world, if you love to network with other filmmakers in this beautiful island, if you want to see why Ang Lee and Martin Scorsese chose Taiwan as their favorite production base, submit your films and join us right way.

如果您希望認識來自世界各地的影像創作者,如果您希望可以在這個美麗的小島與其他電影人交流,如果您想看看李安、馬丁史柯西斯等導演選擇來此拍片的理由,請踴躍報名我們的影展活動。
