The project public presentation was held in an active atmosphere with over 300 industry guests during the event, which became a spotlight in the industry. The two-day project fair also attracted many appointment requests from film companies, domestic and international distribution companies and filmmakers. SIFF PROJECT set up a special Phenom Films Project with the cooperation of Phenom Films post operation center to select two among the finalists, and offer a post-production service equivalent to RMB 150,000.
Last year, a total of 6 projects were shortlisted, 5 of which were feature film debuts of Chinese young directors. After half a year, they all made progresses, and some had completed the re-shooting, some were in editing, and some were to be submitted for review and approval. The finished works are expected to meet audiences this year.
