Monday,Apr 16, 2018

 

A symposium focalizing on the globalization of the Chinese movie industry was held on April 10 by the Center for China and Globalization (CCG), a leading Chinese independent think tank dedicated to the study of Chinese public policy and globalization.

A panel of experts from cultural industries and CCG representatives were brought together for the event, to fully examine the success of the Hollywood movie industry and draw parallels and contrasts with the current internationalization of China’s cultural industries.

The symposium opened with a feature presentation given by Chui-Ti Jansen (Liu Qiudi), CCG senior non-resident fellow, founder of the multimedia platform China Happenings and columnist for the Financial Times. Liu’s speech tracked the historical development of Hollywood and its close links to the growth of US influence, showing the global shift of economic power also plays a significant role in this relationship.

Liu also emphasized the important role of movie talent that migrated to California from around the world in the inter-war period and the importance the US government attached to market access for Hollywood movie exports.

Picking up on points raised in Liu’s speech, a panel of experts drew on their extensive experience in various cultural fields to share insights on Hollywood and implications for the internationalization of China’s growing movie industry.

Lu Xingdong, a seasoned film producer, Chairman of Longs Cultural Industrial Investment Group, and senior council member of CCG, asserted a self-driven and effective film association is essential for China.

Lu also pointed out the importance of comprehensive development and linkages across different segments of the movie industry to assure quality and profitability of movie productions.

Gao Wei of the China Literature and Art Critics Association; Qu Jianping, founder and president of the CITIC Guoan International Film Production Base; Sun Jiashan, director of the Contemporary Art & Literature Criticism Center at the China National Academy of Arts; and Wang Qingyong, chairman of Ajimo Film Investment, also shared their opinions on how China can integrate its culture internationally.
