[Panel 2] US-China Film Collaboration中美電影産業合作:

 9/25/2016 Sunday 11:00AM-1:00PM @ E Street

Over the past few years, the U.S. and Chinese file industries have increasingly explored co-production opportunities-collaborating to produce films for both U.S. and Chinese audiences. Yet, there remain various obstacles U.S. and Chinese filmmakers must overcome in order to produce and promote their films in two widely difference demographics markets. For Chinese filmmakers, for example, beyond simply complying with U.S. policies and regulations, they must also adapt to an entirely different film production process and entertainment culture in the U.S. versus China.

 

We have assembled a panel to discuss the unique obstacles Chinese and Chinese American filmmakers face during the co-production process, and explore potential avenues for strengthening relationships between the U.S. and Chinese film industries to streamline and encourage co-productions.

 

The goal of this panel are to 1) introduce the concept of U.S-China film co-productions to the general public; 2) examine the challenges faced by Chinese and Chinese American filmmakers in the film co-production process; 3) identify further opportunities for collaboration between the U.S. and Chinese film industries.

 

Moderator: Andy LIU Shuai, Digital Communications Specialist, formerly host and reporter with China Movie Channel, covering the Oscars and various other major international events on cinema.

High-profile film and television actresses have begun bringing issues of gender equality in casting and pay to the forefront. The statistics for women working behind the camera are equally bleak.
