- In order to increase the participation of children and
foster their creative abilities, three events have been planned:
(a.) Workshops for educators: to be held in August this year,
during the summer school break. Well-known Taiwanese directors
and television professionals will be invited to provide
teachers with a complete training course in the production
films, allowing seed teachers to take this knowledge back
to their schools and work with their students to produce concepts
and plans for short films.
(b.) Children's short film production guidance program: After
completing workshop courses, participating seed teachers can
present short film production plans along with their students,
and submit them to festival organizers. After reviewing submitted
plans, festival organizers will select outstanding plans, enlist
the services of well-known directors to guide finalists in
completing their films, and provide professional direction
and post-production editing facilities.
(c.) Children's short film festival: Films completed by teachers
and their students will be presented in a special screening
during the first Taiwan International Children's TV & Film
Festival. They will also be broadcast on Taiwan's Public
