In addition to bringing in and showing outstanding dramas, documentaries, animations and television programs, the Festival also includes an international competition with generous prizes that attracts the best works in children’s viewing to participate. 

In addition, a key part of the Festival is the “Kids as Directors” section, which focuses on works in which young filmmakers have had a key role in production. This category gives young people a chance to display their creativity and serves as another way to bring children closer to the world of film and video.

PTS has striven since its founding in 1998 to serve the people of Taiwan with the finest in television viewing for viewers of all ages. PTS has also taken on the heavy responsibility of organizing and carrying out TICFF in order to give children in Taiwan a chance to view the world from a better vantage point.
