Bridging the Dragon & EFM – Sino-European Forum

Curious about the TV & online streaming landscape in China? Want to know how to handle copyrights in this challenging market? Wondering how to make a documentary in China? For the seventh consecutive year the Sino-European producers' association Bridging the Dragon and the European Film Market will organise an intensive program specifically focusing on China.

As the pandemic has hit the film industry severely, at the moment the market in China is thriving with cinemas being opened and the audience enjoying all kinds of movies. For the first time, local yearly box office has overtaken the North American one and become the highest in the world. This market has thus become even more relevant, and being familiar and connected with it is more strategic than ever. For this reason the event will invite a roster of experienced Chinese film personalities to bring latest insider information and help participants analyse some of the challenges they may encounter in approaching this new landscape.

The meetings of the "Sino-European Forum" are scheduled for March 3, 2021 and will be shaped for the online space:

The WEBINAR ON DOCUMENTARY, 9-10 am (CET), and
the KEYNOTE ON TV & STREAMING LANDSCAPE, 10-10.45 am (CET)
will be held virtually on EFM portal for accredited professionals, no pre-registration required.

5 roundtables with a specific theme to be led by experts of the field from 10 to 10.45 (CET). Each table will consist of about 10 participants and will also include some of the on-going projects from the current edition of the Bridging the Dragon's Sino-European Project Lab. The small-group format will allow participants to raise specific questions on the topic and have a rich interaction. The topics are as follows:

1. HANDLING COPYRIGHTS IN CHINA
2. DEVELOPMENT OF GENRE FILMS IN CHINA
3. OPPORTUNITIES FOR ARTHOUSE DRAMA IN CHINA
4. CHALLENGES OF STORYTELLING IN CHINA
5 [For Chinese participants] FINANCING A FILM IN EUROPE: CASE STUDY IN GERMANY
