The metaverse will radically change the way we live, work, travel and communicate. People will live in a new era of digital experience. Creative content, no doubt, will also play a huge role in the metaverse. Encourage relevant stakeholders to experience the creativity and energy of technological innovation in Taiwan and exploring new mediums and forms of storytelling for immersive content, TAICCA Immersive Content Grant supports the co-funding or co-production of future content projects – the immersive experiences.
Taiwan prides itself on its innovative professionals, nationwide high-speed Internet infrastructure, and thriving industries in close contact with the world. Creating the metaverse ecosystem will require synergy between several key industries, but the most important part is content. Over the past few years, Taiwanese XR and immersive content have delivered outstanding performances on the global stage, recognized by international juries and festivals. Many splendid Taiwanese XR works have been selected for Tribeca Film Festival, New Images Festival, Annecy International Animation Film Festival, Raindance Immersive Award, Cannes XR Award, SXSW and Ars Electronica. In 2021, seven works presented by Taiwan were nominated for the 78th Venice International Film Festival. Taiwan is the place in the world where we find all the actors necessary for the development of this ecosystem.
TAICCA promotes the 2022 International Immersive Content Co-Financing and Co-Production Program and invites creators to drive immersive content to build creative responses and explore innovative narratives. The proposed immersive content projects can be interactive, multiplayer, AR, VR, MR, haptic, sound or location-based.
