The New Home for Independent Chinese Cinema
Welcome to the brand spanking new dGenerate Films blog! For those of you unfamiliar with us, dGenerate Films is a new non-theatrical US-based film distribution company focused on contemporary independent cinema from China. Why China? Well, no country in the world is going through a greater transformation and having a greater impact on the world right now, but to most outsiders it’s largely been invisible. It’s our mission to provide first-person, unfiltered looks at the issues facing China today and expose people to the amazing cinematic stories being told by these revolutionary filmmakers.
We’ve assembled an initial slate of films that we couldn’t be prouder of, by such up-and-coming filmmakers as Ying Liang, Ou Ning, and Jian Yi. And our film topics range from budding pop stars to war-era comfort women to the industrialization of rural China.
We’re just getting things underway, having done recent screenings of our films at places like the MOMA, Brooklyn Academy of Music, China Institute, and University of Maryland, and have begun pre-sales of our institutional DVD’s. Our focus is on educational and institutional sales of DVD and downloads, and exhibition screenings at public performance venues like museums, community organizations, and film forums.
So check out our film catalog, bookmark us, add our feed, signup for our email newsletter. We’ll not only be growing our collection, but intend for our site to be the authority on contemporary independent Chinese cinema. Welcome, the dGenerate Films team looks forward to seeing you back soon!
