The FPP consists of two major events: One-on-one private meetings and professional workshops. In November 2022, investors, industry decision-makers and venture partners around the world convened in Taipei City for their chance to meet with the representatives of 68 Selected Projects (40 FPP Projects, 8 WIP Projects and 20 Series Projects), for an astounding total of 1,623 on-site and online pitching meetings. The FPP’s signature one-on-one round table meetings are especially lauded as rare independent spaces, where filmmakers may fully present their creative visions and production capability, and where industry professionals may speak freely and unreservedly. Prior to the meetings, the representatives of the Selected Projects were invited to workshops with their project proposal to discuss with industry veterans, whose valuable suggestions add the polishing touches on pitches, advancing investor commitment prospects.
