Beijing (English) - - INFO -

The First EU- China Short Film Fes­ti­val Award Cer­e­mony took place at the Bei­jing Of­fice of the Del­e­ga­tion of the Euro­pean Union to China on Septem­ber 28, 2017. The event served as a plat­form to show­case short films pro­duced in the EU and in China in re­cent years, as well as to pro­mote pro­fes­sional com­mu­ni­ca­tions be­tween Chi­nese and Euro­pean film­mak­ers and film­go­ers.

Thir­teen EU and Chi­nese films were awarded at the cer­e­mony. Thirty diplo­matic en­voys to China from 17 coun­tries and six am­bas­sadors to China at­tended the event. Film­mak­ers from Bul­garia, Lithua­nia, Slo­vakia, Por­tu­gal and other EU mem­ber states made a trip to China to at­tend the cer­e­mony. Th­ese Euro­pean film­mak­ers were also in­vited to take part in a film screen­ing event held at Zaozhuang Univer­sity in Shan­dong Province, as well as the Third Asia Youth Mi­cro-film Ex­hi­bi­tion held in Suqian City, Jiangsu Province.

Or­gan­ised by the Del­e­ga­tion of the Euro­pean Union to China, the short film fes­ti­val has re­ceived 36 films from 21 EU mem­ber states, as well as 42 films from Jiangsu, Shan­nxi, Ti­bet, Shan­dong, Fu­jian and Shang­hai since its of­fi­cial launch in De­cem­ber 2016. Th­ese films were re­viewed by six judges from film and cul­ture cir­cles, three of them from China and the oth­ers from Europe. Euro­pean judges cri­tiqued and ranked Chi­nese films, while Chi­nese judges graded Euro­pean films.

All the Euro­pean films have Chi­nese sub­ti­tles, while the Chi­nese films all have English sub­ti­tles. Th­ese short films will be made avail­able on the fes­ti­val’s of­fi­cial web­site as of De­cem­ber 31, 2017. They will also be screened at the up­com­ing cul­tural events, as well as cam­pus cin­e­mas of sev­eral Chi­nese uni­ver­si­ties.
