Media Coverage mostly national, very broad coverage in Taiwanese media

Evaluation A festival purely for the public in connection with Taiwans Oscars, the Golden Horse Awards. If people's expectancies rule out much of an international echo, it is certainly a valuable experience. Main annual gathering of the Taiwanese and Hong Kong film industry and as such a good place to make new contacts. Focus on Asian films.
