TAIPEI, May 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Taiwan Creative Content Agency (TAICCA) is pleased to announce that the 5th Taiwan Creative Content Fest (TCCF) will take place from November 5th to 8th at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center. The “Project to Screen” section continues to invite international submissions, with expected total investment resources of over USD 3 million provided.

“Project to Screen”:  Facilitating Production and Market Access

The “Project to Screen” section includes four categories: feature films, series, animation, and documentaries. Submissions open on June 3rd and will undergo evaluation by a panel of international juries. Selected entries will receive training resources and present proposals during TCCF, with accommodation subsidies offered. One outstanding project will be awarded the “Project to Screen: Best Project” award and a prize of USD 30,000.

All selected projects can apply for TAICCA’s “Creative Content Development Program (CCDP) – Development Fund” and “Taiwan’s International Co-funding Program 2.0 (TICP 2.0) Option 2″ within two years. The total funding surpasses USD 3 million, providing resources to advance project development and establish connections within the market. Both initiatives have helped build on success at the Berlinale and Cannes Film Festival in 2024, paving the way for high-quality works with international marketability.

TCCF 2024 continues to collaborate with international festivals, markets, and organizations to promote audiovisual works and talents to the European and global markets. One project selected by Series Mania is invited to participate in the 2025 event. The BIFAN NAFF Project Market, Focus Asia-All Genres Market, and the MIFFest Project Market will also select project proposals from TCCF to participate in upcoming events.

TCCF award winners are making significant impacts and gaining recognition at prestigious film festivals and markets. The documentary “After the Snowmelt,” winner of the “TAICCA X CNC AWARD” in TCCF 2023, has since been selected to multiple international film festivals, including Visions du Réel in Switzerland, Jeonju International Film Festival in South Korea, Trento Film Festival in Italy, and Millennium Docs Against Gravity in Poland, showcasing Taiwan’s cultural and content strengths on the global stage.

Aside from projects selected from the TCCF Project to Screen open call, ones from TAICCA’s workshop in collaboration with “Festival des 3 Continents / Produire au Sud,” “Series Mania Institute,” and audiovisual professionals from South Korea, will also be presented in respected pitching sessions.
