The Taiwanese films on the topics of Taiwan’s Democratic Revolution, the multiculturalism, and the ecological balance were shared with the Mongolian audiences during the festival and we are seeking opportunities for further cooperation between the filmmakers of the two countries,” General Secretary of the Taiwanese Cultural Association, Chen Shi Hoon said. “In recent years, Mongolian filmmakers are participating in international film festivals and films on the topics of Mongolian history and traditional ethnic culture are receiving praise from audiences,” said film researcher from Mongolia B.Tumen-Ulzii. “There is a great potentiality for documentary films to develop and we hope that Mongolian and Taiwanese filmmakers will work together,” he added.
