About TIDF

Founded in 1998, the Taiwan International Documentary Festival, TIDF, is one of the major professional platforms for documentaries in Asia. We are looking for innovative documentaries with unique points of views which are relevant to social and human interests.

TIDF is a biennial festival that presents a well-curated programme of more than 130 films, and includes festival-related public and educational programs, such as Q&A sessions, workshops, and exhibitions. Each edition of TIDF attracts an audience of more than 25, 000.

In 2014, the TIDF executive team established its permanent office under the Taiwan Film and Audiovisual Institute. Under the leitmotif “Re-encounter Reality”, TIDF presents a program with three competitions (International, Asian, and Taiwanese) and varying program sections. It is our aim to create a platform for quality documentaries from all over the world, and to foster exchange among directors, film professionals and audiences.
