Tainan City’s Shalun Farm will be transformed into an international film industry hub, Premier Lin Chuan said Sunday.
Lin said at an event Sunday morning that Oscar-winning Taiwanese director Ang Lee (李安) had brought up the topic during a recent meeting between them.
While a clear agenda has yet to be set in stone, the government has plans to transform Shalun into a film industry hub, he said.
The news follows a Facebook post by Tainan City Mayor William Lai announcing that Lin had discussed setting up an international film industry hub in Tainan with Lee, who returned to Taiwan in early October to promote his latest film.
The Facebook post also revealed that by Oct. 13, just over a week after meeting with Lee, Lin had already discussed the project with three ministers without portfolio, relevant government agencies, the Tainan City Government and Taisugar representatives. [FULL STORY]
