Taiwanese movies have earned a high reputation in international film festivals over the past few years, giving a different impression of Taiwan, with its vitality of soft power and culture, to the whole world. Last year, the number of tourists to Taiwan reached a record of 5,567,000; to keep the number rising, the Tourism Bureau is targeting 4 categories of tourists: young backpackers, senior couples, young women, and families. A brand-new international promotional film was shot, using movie production values for the first time, to incorporate the island's natural beauty and cultural diversity into a short film. The beauty of Taiwan is shown through both images and sound to portray Taiwan's warmth and hospitality to from tourists around the world.
The most meaningful element of a trip is "people", who give tourists their most lasting memories, and it is friendly interpersonal relations that make Taiwan a unique destination for tourists from all over the world. The Tourism Bureau invited director Johnason Lo, who has won international Promax, iF Design, and red-dot awards, and Michael Fimognari, a well-known photographer with two Emmy awards to his credit, to help produce the film, "Time for Taiwan—My Beautiful Island". The film takes a completely different perspective, and focuses primarily on interpersonal relations at their most unique. The film is designed in a way that escapes the constraints of a rigid government promotional film, and also abandons the old fashioned style of a drama or a scenic-spot-oriented film. The images in the film are seen through eyes of four groups of tourists and through their stories in Taiwan, which show vividly the excitement and discovery they experience during their journey. A trip can produce in tourists valuable memories and a desire to come again. This is what the film, "It's time for Taiwan", tries to tell everyone in the world: come experience this beautiful island.
The film combines two themes -- "International Spotlight" and "Tour Taiwan, Experience the Centennial"-- along with Taiwan's folk religions, folk culture, aboriginal tribes, hot springs, innovation, contemporary culture, hiking, and eco-tourism. The film is the product of a full year of planning and shooting. Four versions with different lengths have been produced: 16 minutes, 10 minutes, 60 seconds, and 30 seconds.
