PANEL: FILMMAKING OPPORTUNITIES IN LGBTQ-FRIENDLY TAIWAN

As the first in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage, Taiwan not only shines as the beacon of LGBTQ rights, the country has also become the hottest film and TV production hub in Asia. Ang Lee’s Life of Pi, Martin Scorsese’s Silence, Luc Besson’s Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson, and indie hits like Netflix’s Dear Ex, Baby Steps, and The Wedding Banquet were all filmed in Taiwan.

Artistic freedom, diverse cinematic locations, strong film incentives, mature infrastructure, LGBTQ-friendly crew, and environment are a few compelling reasons why studios like Netflix, HBO, and indie filmmakers are making their projects in Taiwan. The forum will feature producers, filmmakers, and industry professionals who will share their experiences working in Taiwan and advise filmmakers on how to leverage the resources and opportunities in Taiwan to create their next projects.
