金馬電影學院 Golden Horse Film Academy
Since 2009, world-renowned filmmaker HOU Hsiao-hsien founded the Golden Horse Film Academy. Director HOU has remained the Film Academy’s Honorary Dean these years, where emerging scriptwriters, directors and cinematographers are invited annually to take part in this exciting mentorship and development program in Taiwan. These budding talents from Mandarin-speaking regions come to the program having completed short films each year. They are then teamed-up with one another and given a month’s time for shooting and producing collaborative short film for screening at the Golden Horse Film Festival.
