The Taiwan Creative Content Agency (TAICCA, 文策院) held the "78th Venice Film Festival VR Unit Taiwan Finalists Press Conference" (第78屆威尼斯影展VR單元 台灣入圍作品記者會). Curator Michel Reilhac stated that many internationally co-produced shortlisted works show that language can break national barriers, the categories and richness of the chosen works show the diversity of Taiwan culture. I would like to thank Taiwanese creators for their abundant creative energy for bringing good works to the world. Curator Liz Rosenthal pointed out that the selected works in 2021 will be displayed on the online platform.
