Mountains, rivers, and coastlines are all quite beautiful, yet none can compare to the beauty of the human heart.
A beautiful island, a place to call home, a place of friendship.
As the Trending Taiwan Short Film Competition enters its third year, we would like to thank all the creators who submitted their works in the the last two competitions. The Trending Taiwan YouTube Channel now houses all the previous entries, allowing viewers to explore customs and traditions previously known only to locals as well as experience the emotion of shared private moments captured on camera. Moreover, via these films, the world can learn more of the beauty of Taiwan and its people. It is our hope that once again, with this year’s competition, these Taiwan stories will ultimately become international classics.
For the 3rd Trending Taiwan Short Film Competition, a new competition category has been added. The “Taiwan Global Partner Award” looks to award creators for films which not only share the beauty of Taiwan but also the ways in which Taiwan is making efforts and contributing internationally in various fields.
With the start of this year’s competition, Trending Taiwan is once again calling on all creators. We want you to share your stories and show the beauty of life as it unfolds around you. The total prize money for this year’s event is NT$690,000. Help us to show the world how special and wonderful Taiwan and its people truly are. Your stories are Taiwan’s stories!
Submission period: 2017.08.31 - 2017.10.16
