HONG KONG -- Golden Horse nominee "Miao Miao" will make its market debut at the upcoming American Film Market, repped by Fortissimo Films, the company announced Monday.

Directed by first-time helmer Cheng Hsiao Tse from Taiwan and produced by Wong Kar Wai's longtime producer Jacky Pang, "Miao Miao" has been nominated for best actress (Sandrine Pinna) and best original film song at Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, to be held in December.

Jet Tone Films and J.A. Movies (H.K.) produced the film, the former's first in Taiwan. Fortissimo has acquired the film's worldwide rights excluding China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. It is scheduled for release in Taiwan by Warner Bros. in mid-November, and by Golden Scene in Hong Kong in late November.
