Chinese Cinema at 100: Art, Politics and Commerce
In conjunction with a recently completed book manuscript entitled Chinese Film at 100: Art, Politics and Commerce, edited by ZHU Ying and Stanley ROSEN, this conference will bring together many of the contributors to that volume, as well as other leading specialists on Chinese film.
Thursday, April 24, 2008
6:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Davidson Conference Center
University of Southern California
Broad topics to be addressed include the Chinese Film Industry and its Local and Global Market; Film Art: Genre and Authorship; Film Culture and Film Discourse; and Previously Underrepresented and Emerging Topics.
Since the conference will address not only the aesthetics of Chinese film, but also examine commerce and politics, in addition to academic panels there will be panels and roundtables which include filmmakers and film executives from China and Hollywood. One such panel will bring together practitioners based in Hollywood, particularly those originally from China, who will discuss their experiences in marketing their films to China. A parallel panel will include practitioners from China, who will discuss their experiences in marketing their films both in China and overseas.
