International exchange program with Taipei Media School

CinemAsia is committed to broaden its ties with the Asian lm and media industry. To this end, FilmLAB has taken a significant step by pioneering a collaboration with Taiwan’s Taipei Media School (TMS) — an educational institute with a progressive vision and curriculum.

After a careful selection process, two students have been chosen from a shortlist of candidates to embark on a month-long internship in Amsterdam. Arriving in February, 2018, Minna Huang and Jack Su followed a program custom-made for them, turning up for every post-production session our FilmLAB participants engaged in. After gaining first-hand knowledge of colour grading, editing and sound mixing, they made their own promotional video and social media diary about their experiences. They also had numerous opportunities to immerse themselves in Dutch arts and culture, as well as visit sites of historic interest and natural beauty. During the festival, they were joined by their classmate Woody Yang and actively contributed as Taiwan’s film ambassadors.

It was truly inspiring to cooperate with Director Tim Chen and the teachers of TMS, who were open to any idea that would expand their students’ horizons. We hope to develop and elevate our shared educational goals together every year.
