Distribution - Warm embrace in Taiwan
Something is brewing in Taiwan. In the past 12 months it has become a more active buying market for international films, home to new distributors with deep pockets, while Hong Kong companies, such as Filmko, are launching local production offices to benefit from government subsidies and local talent. At the heart of the new optimism is the success of local film Cape No. 7, the biggest hit in Taiwan since James Cameron's Titanic.
