Description


Working in China's film industry and telling new stories

with Joan Xu, screenwriter based in Beijing

Wednesday, November 22, 2017, 19:00

Eno atelier, Rue du Dublin 42, 1050 Bruxelles

As the world's second largest film market, China's film industry has grown rapidly in changing times. Shaped by broadening demand for entertainment and digital innovations, the movie scene is flourishing with the state, private and foreign investors increasingly competing and cooperating. From the role played by censorship to unlocking Chinese acting talent, box office booms to the blossoming private studios, join us for a discussion on this expanding industry with a rising talent working in Hollywood and in China. Joan Xu will talk about the industry, sharing with us her work focusing on youth culture and insights on new ideas emerging there.
