After the 921 Earthquake, CTFA saved over 3 million feet of severely damaged film reels stored by Taiwan Film Culture Co.
CTFA celebrated its 20th anniversary with various events held at the Huashan Art & Cultural Park, including a “Flea Market”, “Avant-Garde Film Screenings”, “Catch-up Tea Party”, “Movie Quiz”, and an exhibition showcasing the archive's work over the past 20 years. In addition, there were exhibitions of CTFA’s copied films, images, texts, and 20-year achievements at the Taipei Public Library.
Taipei Film Processing Lab placed 161 Taiwanese negatives, sound films, and subtitle films, including The Peach Blossom Land and Treasure Land, that they previously stored, in CTFA’s storage.
Co-organized the “60s Taiwan Cinema and Cinematography” forum with the Chinese Society of Cinematographers.
CTFA held a pre-departure press conference for the “US Tour of Talks & Screenings of Taiwan Documentaries” commissioned by the Council of Cultural Affairs. The talks and screenings were scheduled to take place at Harvard Film Archive, the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, and University of California, Los Angeles.
The “Cinema from Benches” event, commissioned by Taipei City Government, opened at Daan Forest Park.
The film manuscripts, scripts, documents, photos, books, props, and other materials, totaling 296 boxes, which King HU donated to the University of California, Los Angeles in his early years, were shipped from the US and arrived at the CTFA’s Shulin vaults.
Failing to privatize, Taiwan Film Culture Co. closed permanently. The 54-year-old company still held 3 million feet of newsreels documenting important moments in Taiwan's history, including films, equipment, graphic materials, and some videotapes, which were gradually transported back to the Shulin vaults for preservation.
In collaboration with Taipei Film Festival, held the “CHEN Tzu-fu Hand-Painted Movie Posters” exhibition at Taipei City Mayor’s Residence, a Japanese-style architecture.
Taipei Film Festival continued to expand in scale. In order to maintain the fairness and credibility of the competition, CTFA was entrusted to continue handling the "Commercial Feature Film Awards" and the "Independent Film Competition" sections of the festival. The "International Film Panorama" was handled by Taiwan Filmcenter, and the Taipei Film Association was responsible for event organization.
CTFA, Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival Executive Committee, and Sun Movie co-organized the “Taiwan Cinema, Taiwan Nostalgia: Saving 50 Old Films” fundraising campaign. Sun Movie was the first to announce a donation to restore two prints of PAI Ching-jui’s The Autumn Love Song and Father, Husband, Son.
