“Taiwan in my Eyes” – TaiwanICDF Presents Scholarship Recipient Short Film Competition Awards

“Taiwan in my Eyes” – TaiwanICDF Presents Scholarship Recipient Short Film Competition Awards

The International Cooperation and Development Fund(TaiwanICDF)will hold the TaiwanICDF Scholarship Recipient Short Film Competition Award Ceremony on September 21, 2018 at 10:30 at the Institute of Diplomacy and International Affairs, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The first-time event targets TaiwanICDF scholarship recipients and teams formed by them, inviting them to draw audiences into the beauty of Taiwan through their lenses using “Taiwan in my Eyes” as the theme. Among the 18 submissions, there are participants from 13 universities and 12 countries which include Belize, Honduras, Palau, Thailand and Columbia. The top three prizes, two awards of distinction and one honorable mention were selected after review by a panel of judges.

Among the prize winners, a Belizean who is currently studying his master’s at National Chengchi University, Aurel Lewis is excited and surprised to be awarded first place. He describes how living in Taiwan has given him a very special opportunity to not only pursue his goals but his hobbies, too. In his eyes, Taiwan is not just a place of high-quality education or a tourist destination; it has now become his home.

In the 20 years since the TaiwanICDF first initiated the International Higher Education Scholarship Program, the program has nurtured countless professionals who have contributed their specialties after returning to their home countries. The intercultural exchange experience they have gained while living in Taiwan has also broadened their vision, making the program an important link for Taiwan to the international community.
