Taiwan International Ethnographic Film Festival


Taiwan International Ethnographic Film Festival

International Film Festival.


The Taiwan International Ethnographic Film Festival (TIEFF) is the oldest and longest running festival of its kind in Asia. This year’s festival consists of forty two films from twenty countries, selected by our judges from over one thousand five hundred submissions — sent to us from one hundred and eleven countries. The directors include both established names with international reputations and first time directors making their film festival debut. There is also a remarkable diversity of cinematic approaches on display at this year’s festival, including personal, observational, experimental, reflexive, and sensory styles of ethnographic filmmaking.


  • All films submitted to the festival must have been completed between 2017 and 2019.
  • Each filmmaker may submit a maximum of two films.
  • The festival is open to films/videos made in all formats.
  • We do not accept open submission of films shorter than 12 minutes or longer than 210 minutes, but will occasionally make exceptions by special arrangement.
