“Fuzhong 15” is the first themed film theater to offer cartoons and documentary films in Taiwan. It is divided into the New Taipei City Documentary Cinema and the New Taipei City Animation House. “The New Taipei City Documentary Cinema” is the first venue in Taiwan exclusively for playing documentary films and was opened to the public in January of 2011.  Located at the basement of Fuzhong 15, it offers quality documentary films, after-film discussions, promotional activities, collections of documentaries, promotional courses from its workshop, and activities where documentary film workers may share and exchange their experience and ideas.

 

“The New Taipei City Animation House” is the first “experiencing house” focused on animation.  A custom-made, animation-playing castle for adults and children was opened to the public in April of 2012,.  Located on the 2nd to the 8th floors of Fuzhong 15, it has an exclusive animation exhibition space, video-library as well as activity rooms.  Through various interactive devices in the exhibition, the staff have organized many interactive activities, allowing people to get to know the process of animation making while peeking at the process of how creators get their ideas, how to design, produce, modify, edit an animation as well as the behind-the-screen scenes, and to experience first-hand the passion for animation creating so that next time when they watch an animation, they would have much more different thoughts than before as if they were actually in that fantasy world of the animation.  With the exhibition of the videos, diverse experience courses and educational resources, staff at the Fuzhong 15 hope that once people walk into the animation house, they are not only offered great stories but also will be able to tell their own stories with ease.
