SCFF 2022 will be a mixed format of in-cinema and virtual events with a total of 52 titles from Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore.
For the first time, the Ministry of Culture leveraged an OTT platform to broadcast high-quality Taiwanese films in India, encouraging Indian audiences to learn about Taiwan through films and increase their interest in Taiwan. The selected films will demonstrate the diversity and richness in the culture of Taiwan.
