Manila - Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee, who plans to make a movie in the Philippines, says independent Asian filmmakers have a better chance these days of finding audiences around the world.

The Taiwanese-born director is in Manila as a guest of Taiwan's de facto embassy, which honoured him with a special screening on Thursday night of Life of Pi.

Lee told a forum with filmmakers and media that he was inspired by how the world received the movie.

"I think that's good news for all of us," he said. "You have a chance to make it and find your audience."
