Book to Screen
Taiwan Creative Content Agency (TAICCA) Book to Screen program strives to promote a diverse range of Taiwanese stories with great screen-adaptation potentials to producers worldwide. This initiative aims to facilitate more collaborations in IP development and bring more Taiwanese stories to the screen!
With the need for adaptation and IP development in the global market on the rise, Taiwanese stories, full of vibrant creative energy and freedom from the beautiful pacific island, will captivate you. Spanning a diverse array of different themes, genres and formats, Taiwanese stories offer a hybrid of cultural wonders in a fascinating and unique manner. It showcases rich colonial histories and ancient aboriginal tales, brimming and bustling amidst the modern city skyline interwoven with old structure and secrets, and reflecting the liveliness of nature from the summit of Jade Mountain to the depths of the blue sea. People here are free to love and express themselves; creativity and imagination know no bounds. Everyone can discover a story tailored to them here!
In the past years, TAICCA has promoted several books in different international markets, expanding our presence through international publishing-to-film related events. We have also actively worked with Taiwanese publishers/agencies to select and recommend books and comics regularly to the audiovisual industry, bridging and fostering more collaborations.
Additionally, in November 2023, during the Taiwan Creative Content Fest (TCCF) held in Taipei, for the first time the "Story to Screen" will be introduced under TCCF Pitching. This venue aims to promote links and business between publishers, literary agents, screen financiers and producers to foster screen-adaptations via public pitching and scheduled one-to-one meetings, and to maximize the value of Taiwanese stories.
