Venue: Jin Jue Ballroom, Crowne Plaza Shanghai

 

In 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 cast a gloom over the global film market. The Chinese film industry had managed to resume work and production relatively early, achieving an annual nationwide box-office gross of 20.417 billion Chinese Yuan. The 10 highest-grossing films of the year were all domestic productions, accounting for 83.72% of the total box office.

 

Under the context of the pandemic as well as its necessary safety protocols, in an effort to achieve mutual growth and support among all stakeholders of the film industry, filmmakers work together to produce high-quality creative works while passing on the Chinese spirit and values and demonstrating China’s strength. At the 100th anniversary of the Communist Party of China, how can the Chinese film industry expand creative themes, improve production quality, and create high-quality films in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Communist Party of China? How to maintain the vitality of the film market and fully unleash the potential of film consumption? How to enhance the narrative of Chinese films from an international perspective and convey the Chinese spirit and values? With the above questions in mind, this forum invites leading figures from domestic film companies to offer insights into the potential of China’s film industry.

In recent years, many young filmmakers have produced outstanding film works with unique characteristics through professional filmmaking and narrative techniques. These works have gained the favor of and been recognized by various film festivals, film markets, and the general audience. Life is the source of creative works. Young filmmakers have started to express their very own ideas of society and life more and more through their films. However, with the rapid growth of Chinese film industry and increasing global communication, the market has required films to show diversity. How would the new generation of young filmmakers react when self-expression is in conflict with the demand of the film market? From the perspective of the industry, what are the measures to increase international competitiveness and communication of Chinese films, to provide more Chinese faces for global cinema, and to effectively tell Chinese stories with international expressions. In this forum, jury members and selected young filmmakers of the SIFF YOUNG will each discuss their creative process and plans for future filmmaking.

Marketing Strategy of Mainstream Cinema

 

Time: 10:00-12:00

Date: Sunday, June 13, 2021

Venue: Jin Jue Ballroom, Crowne Plaza Shanghai

 

In recent years, mainstream cinema has obtained both critical and commercial success with market-oriented creative techniques, novel ways of expression, and impressive image visualization. Combining grand themes with ordinary characters, mainstream cinema has vividly demonstrated the spirit of the era through a contrast between the macro and the micro.

 

How should creators grasp the key to the literary and artistic expression of mainstream cinema to resonate with and remind the audience of our collective cultural memory through film aesthetics? How should we avoid the homogeneity of the subject matter and fully explore the potential of the mainstream topics to achieve diversity and quality? How can we retain both ideological cohesion and market appeal and find a way to commercialize mainstream films? This forum will focus on the above questions.

Taking an international angle, the film breaks the typical chronicle narrative strategy of mainstream films and tells the story of the 13 delegates gathering in Shanghai to hold the First National Congress of Communist Party of China from a whole new perspective. How should films portray the characters vividly and present splendid images? What kind of poetic or modern visual expressions are used? How can young actors accurately portray the founders of CPC in their youth? In this forum, Huang Jianxin, together with a few members of the cast, will tell the story of the making of “1921”.

Reshape Imagination and Redefine the Future: New Thoughts on Chinese Sci-Fi Movies

 

Time: 10:00-12:00

Date: Thursday, June 17, 2021

Venue: Jin Jue Ballroom, Crowne Plaza Shanghai

 

Science fiction is the imagination and reflection on the future under modern technology and civilization. It represents the aspiration, exploration, and reflection of mankind on the unknown. Science fiction is one of the most important film genres and represents the highest level of a country’s cinema in terms of technology, innovation, imagination, and industrialization. In 2019, “The Wandering Earth” marks the grand opening of an era for Chinese science fiction films. In August 2020, China Film Administration and China Association for Science and Technology issued “Several Opinions on Promoting the Development of Science Fiction Films” (referred to as “Science Fiction Ten Articles” for short). The document proposes to build science fiction films into an important growth point and a new driving force for the development of high-quality films.

 

How can Chinese science fiction films find their own unique characteristics? How do we build a scientific, aesthetic, and industrial system for Chinese science fiction films? With the above questions in mind, this forum invites Chinese filmmakers to have a conversation with representatives from the science and technology and science fiction communities to discuss the blueprint for Chinese science fiction films as well as the science and technology and cultural industry.

SIFF MasterClass

 

Two years ago, we sent our first invitation of SIFF MasterClass to Apichatpong Weerasethakul, but he was unable to attend due to a conflict in schedule. Finally, this April, he accepted our invitation and proposed to invite a Chinese filmmaker to be the co-speaker. Immediately, Jia Zhang-ke became our first choice. In 2020, the two directors’ written dialogue in the Filmkrant magazine struck a chord with cinephiles worldwide. Jia was glad to attend and turn this proposal into reality.

 

In 2001, “No Man’s Land” stunned the 54th Cannes Film Festival, and the director Danis Tanović rose to international fame. The Bosnian director is known for his depictions of common people in wartime, and his detached and attentive film language has won him international acclaim. We look forward to having him share his new projects and present the condensed beauty of war films.

 

Regarding Chinese filmmakers, we have invited the martial artist, actor, and director Donnie Yen, who is a household name. He returns to Shanghai, bringing his new film “Raging Fire”. Yen’s 40-year-long exploration of martial arts has taken him around the world, with works such as the “Ip Man” franchise gaining huge domestic and international recognition. He has also set up Yen’s Stunt Team to pass on Chinese martial arts. This year, we are pleased to have this legendary martial artist share his stories.

 

As one of the greatest living Russian directors, Aleksandr Sokurov shocked the world with his 96-minute one-shot film “Russian Ark”. His works are not only technically exquisite, but also possess idiosyncratic philosophies of history, art, and life. We have also invited Marco Müller, an Italian producer and film critic who currently resides in Shanghai, to be the co-speaker. Müller has been the producer of two of Sokurov’s films. Through this event, we hope that Chinese film fans can acquire a more in-depth understanding of Sokurov and his works and also obtain a greater appreciation for the beauty of global cinema.

 

An old friend of ours, the Mauritanian director Abderrahmane Sissako served as a Jury member of the Golden Goblet Award in 2016, where he met director Pema Tseden, who was also on the Jury. The two directors’ shared memories of the Festival made Pema Tseden the perfect co-speaker. Now that five years have passed, although separated by thousands of miles, they are still excited for their long-awaited reunion.

 

No man is an island. In the greeting videos, Apichatpong greets us in the jungle of Chiang Mai with the ambient sound of cicadas, while Sissako, who lives as far as western Africa, says, “We are connected by the passion and belief in cinema”. Never before have we so heartily experienced the destiny shared by filmmakers.

 

Cinema has given us the privilege to stand on the shoulders of giants and have a bird’s eye view of the world.

Donnie even went on to play lead roles in three huge, high profile features: Star Wars standalone film “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”, the second one “XXX: Return of Xander Cage”, and the third movie was Disney’s epic “Mulan”, which gathered world class talent with a combination of eastern and western elements.
