The Belt and Road Film Week Overview

 

Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF) launched the Silk Road panorama in 2015. In 2016, SIFF set up “the Belt and Road” Series as a permanent program and entered into cooperation agreements with a few international competitive non-specialized film festivals, such as Tallinn Black Night Film Festival and Cairo International Film Festival. In 2017, during the 20th edition of SIFF, representatives from 14 countries’ film festivals and institutions were invited to sign the “Belt and Road” Film Culture Exchange Memorandum of Cooperation, including Hungary, Greece, Egypt, Philippines, Lithuania, India, etc.
