The Golden Horse Film Festival and Awards (traditional Chinese: 臺北金馬影展pinyin: Táiběi Jīnmǎ Yǐngzhǎn) is a film festival and awards ceremony held annually in Taiwan since 1962. The awards ceremony is usually held in November or December in Taipei, though the venue has been shifted around the island in recent times.

It is modeled after the Academy Awards and major film festivals worldwide. The awards, contested by submissions from Taiwan, Hong Kong, People's Republic of China (PRC) and elsewhere.

Winners are selected by a jury of judges in the week leading up to the ceremony. Winners are awarded with a Golden Horse statuette during a broadcast ceremony.



The Golden Horse awards ceremony is held after a month-long festival showcasing some of the nominated feature films for the awards. A majority of the film winners in the history of the awards have been Hong Kong productions.

In May 1962, the Government Information Office of the Republic of China (Taiwan) enacted the “Mandarin Film Award Regulation of Year 1962” to officially found the Golden Horse Awards. The name 金馬 comes from the islands of Kinmen () and Matsu (), which are under ROC control. [1]

Under current regulations, any film made primarily in a Chinese language is eligible for competition. Since 1996, a liberalization act allows for films from mainland China to enter the Awards. Mainland artists or films has won several times, such as Jiang Wen's In the Heat of the Sun in 1996, Best Actor for Xia Yu (夏雨) in 1996, Joan Chen's Xiu Xiu: the Sent down Girl in 1999, Best Actress for Qin Hailu (秦海璐) in 2001 and Lu Chuan's Kekexili: Mountain Patrol in 2004.
