Founded in 1998, Taiwan International Documentary Festival, TIDF, is one of the major professional platforms for documentaries in Asia, looking for documentaries that are creative, relevant to social and human interests, and have unique points of view. We encourage innovative filmmakers and documentaries with experimental spirit. Each edition, TIDF screens around 130 films, creating some 30,000 visits.
In 2014, TIDF executive team with a permanent office has been established under CTFA, responsible for the festival and documentary related affairs in Taiwan. TIDF presents various programmes each edition, including international competition, as well as Asian and Taiwanese competition, bringing quality documentaries together to create more connections amongst the world, Asian and Chinese documentaries.
