HK’s Filmko opens Taiwan branch

Announcement coincides with 'Love' launch

Hong Kong-based Filmko Holdings has set up a Taipei branch office with plans for an integrated production pipeline dedicated to Taiwanese films.

The announcement was timed to coincide with the launch of the shingle’s latest film “Love to the End,” an NT$50 million ($1.5 million) romantic comedy set to lense in October, with an eye toward a Valentine’s Day release.

Pic is one of between six and eight films that Filmko plans to produce through its Taiwan facility within the next three years. Its as-yet untitled second movie will start filming in March.

“We hope that Filmko Taiwan’s coming productions will bring together the expertise of existing Taiwanese, Hong Kong and Chinese filmmakers,” said Luo Xiuhui, managing director of Filmko Taiwan. “At the same time we also hope to unearth new Taiwanese directing and acting talent.”

“Love to the End” is an ensemble production in the vein of “Paris, je t’aime,” with segments helmed by directors Mickey Huang, Chen Yi-xian, Vincent Fang, and Taiwanese online cult writer Nine Knives.
