Chris Berry and Luke Robinson of the Chinese Film Festival studies website (http://www.chinesefilmfeststudies.org) announce the following updates to the site:
NEWS: We have news here of the Washington DC Chinese Film Festival, due to take place later this year in the USA. In addition, the 4th edition of the Beijing International Film Festival is drawing to a close. There has been general coverage in the trade press – we include here a link to an article in The Hollywood Reporter on the festival film awards, along with a gallery of photos – but Oliver Stone’s comments on politics and the Chinese film industry were also widely discussed. A link to Screen Daily’s report (behind paywall) on this incident is included.
GALLERIES: A small gallery of photos to accompany the report from our second network meeting and accompanying one-day conference, both held at Hong Kong University, have been added.
ARCHIVE: We include here a link to an interview in Chinese with Dr Lin Wen-Chi of the Taipei Film Archive, organiser of the Golden Harvest Awards, conducted by network member Ming-Yeh Rawnsley. Ming-Yeh is researching the Golden Harvest Awards as part of her work with the network.
EVENTS: Finally, a written report on the second network workshop, and the one-day conference that followed – both of which took place at Hong Kong University on March 31st and April 1st, 2014 – is included under Events. It’s accessible both as an html page and as a downloadable pdf.
