Bridging the dragon, the international association that connects the European and Chinese film industries and the European Film Market (EFM) present the 3rd Sino-European Production Seminar. The event, moderated by Patrick Frater of Variety magazine, is aimed at European producers and will include an update on the Chinese film market, a panel created in collaboration with AFTP on the topic of casting Chinese actors for co- productions, and a series of round tables. During these, participants will be assigned to a table with a Chinese expert and will have the opportunity to ask questions, comment and share their opinions on specific topics such as: how to finance films in China, what content is suitable for co-productions, the specific differences in storytelling, how to approach Chinese talent.

Matthijs Wouter Knol director of the EFM, Kirsten Niehuus of the Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg fund and the Italian Cristiano Bortone representing Bridging the dragon will welcome the participants.

Among the speakers Wang Yu from the Chinese magazine Chinese Film Market, Jerry Ye (Vice President of the giant Huayi Brothers), the casting director Auyeung Poping who has collaborated on almost all Chinese co-productions in Hollywood and Jessica Chen (Easy Entertainment), one of the best-known agents in China.
The event represents a further contribution from the Bridging the dragon association to support the process of bringing European professionals closer to the Chinese film market, as this is preparing to overtake the US market and become the first in the world. The association, which also boasts Italian members, is supported by the majority of European funds including MIBACT.
