Workshop: Film Production in the Greater China Region
Date: 26-27 March 2013 

Global Creative Industries SMLC Workshop

Film Production in the Greater China Region

Benefiting from the rise of local consumer markets, Asia’s film industries are expanding at a remarkable pace and attracting the influx of foreign investment. The Asian cinema has long been subject to the influence of the three key Chinese-language film industries in China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. With the unprecedented degree of interaction among China, Hong Kong and Taiwan’s film industries in recent years, a new structure of Greater Chinese-language film industries is emerging. This structure indicates the growth of a coordination platform which is likely to become a core driving force of the Asian cinema. This workshop provides a platform to access key issues related to film production in the Greater China region such as funding, business model, production, coordination and branding and marketing which characterize the development of the Greater Chinese-language film industries. The workshop aims to bring together scholars and practitioners in the field to discuss major challenges and opportunities facing the film industries in Greater China in the world market.

All are welcome, no registration is required.

The conference is generously funded by the School of Modern Languages and Cultures.

Venue: B0758, Run Run Shaw Tower, Centennial Campus, The University of Hong Kong
