New in IGCS - Film (Taiwan):

Chinese Taipei Film Archive

Ed./Corp.: Chinese Taipei Film Archive, Taiwan.
Language: Chinese and English.

Self description: The Chinese Taipei Film Archive CTFA is devoted to
collect, restore and preserve moving image heritage of our country. CTFA was
upgraded as film archive in 1992. The collection of CTFA has over 10,700
film prints including newsreels, documentaries, features, shorts, 8,000
videos, and film-related collections.

Description: CTFA is one of the most important sites to find material, both
written and audio-visual, on Chinese film from the pre-45 time as well as
Taiwan film since then. As the Chinese site is much more comprehensive it is
strongly suggested to work with this one if your language abilities will
allow so.

Contents: Activities of the CTFA as well as access to their catalogue
(books). They are publishing the "Cinema Yearbook of the Republic of China"
and the "Film Appreciation Journal" (both in Chinese) and you find links to
the contents of these on this homepage.


With kind regards,

Martin Gieselmann (editor IGCS - Film) &
