A Toast to Chinese Cinema
IWC celebrates Chinese cinema at the Beijing International Film Festival
For the fourth year, IWC celebrates Chinese cinema by partnering the Beijing International Film Festival (BJIFF). An exclusive gala dinner themed “For the Love of Cinema” was held on 19 April at the prestigious Aman at Summer Palace. Celebrities and VIPS present included actresses and IWC brand ambassadors Zhou Xun and Rosamund Pike, as well as Liu Weiqiang and Guan Hu. During the dinner, 94-year-old actress and film legend Qin Yi was honoured with the IWC Filmmaker Award for her contributions to Chinese cinema.
