ceremony of the event, which showcased Taiwan’s best TV products and spurred international
cooperation and sales.

Deputy

excellent place to take stock of the industry, share experiences and
technologies, develop international cooperation, and work for a healthier
environment for cultural industries. The Ministry of Culture, he stressed, has
invested in creating an environment conducive to the growth of cultural
industries. It has offered awards and funding for the publishing of novels,
creation of scripts, establishment of the Taiwan Comic Base, program
production, post-production and special effects, culture-related technology,
personnel training, overseas marketing, and script translations and dubbing. These
programs have laid the groundwork for creation, and greatly increased the
nation’s capacity to produce original content. More, they have opened up new
pathways for derivative content to reach the marketplace.

There
were 84 buyers representing 20 nations and regions. Among the guests of honor were
GYAO and Hulu Japan, both of Japan, and the sponsors also added a Southeast
Asia Exhibition Area, where the representatives of related countries set up
booths.

In
attendance were 64 of Taiwan’s television channels, post-production firms, new
media technology firms, TV content creators, over-the-top platforms, film
councils of Taiwan’s cities and counties, and Southeast Asian vendors, as well
as the newly established Taiwan Creative Content Agency (TIACCA). Altogether,
these operators offered 244 TV programs.

Three
International TV Forums were held: Bringing Taiwan’s Original Content to the
Global Market, the TV/OTT Effect on Drama Productions; and Content Analytics:
Functions and Applications. At these, experts from around the globe shared insights
and perspectives on the latest international trends, successful cases, and key
operational milestones. These events spurred greater understanding among
Taiwan’s industry players. Two pitching sessions allowed Taiwan’s content
creators to meet with investors from all over the world.
