It is Taichung’s first arts and cultural space for non-mainstream films. Its official operations by the Taichung Film Development Foundation (TFDF) began since last November and each month, a thematic film festival is planned to independently show selected films from different countries. Now more than 400 sessions were brought to its visitors. Relevant seminars are also organized and now it is an important site of artistic films.
The Director-General of Information Bureau, Wu Huang-Sheng said, fewer cinemas participated in shopping festivals organized by different cities. In this year’s Taichung Shopping Festival, 13 cinemas are invited to take part for more diversity. Added values are created. Cinemas provide more incentives for shoppers and at the same time, they will increase revenues and exposure. They also help Taichung to grow its economy and enable consumers, business operators and the City Government to win at the same time.
