MARCH 16, 2017, HONG KONG: More than 250 delegates from the movie industry around the world attended the China Daily Asia Leadership Roundtable Panel on “Sino-Foreign Co-Production Films Summit” at The Hong Kong Internationa Film & TV Market (FILMART).
Sino-Foreign co-productions had bolstered China’s box office more than three-fold between 2010 and 2016. Last year alone, eight out of 10 top-grossing films on the Chinese mainland were co-productions, including “The Mermaid”, which netted more than 3.3 billion yuan (US$480 million). Recent notable co-productions included “The Great Wall” and “Kung Fu Yoga”. China has co-production agreements with more than 13 countries and regions so far, and the number is rising. As the nation’s movie industry continues to grow rapidly on the back of collaboration in capital, content, talent and distribution, the role of Sino-Foreign co-productions in the global film market calls for a deep analysis.
China Daily is delighted to have had 10 distinguished speakers: Mr. Teddy CHEN, a prominent Hong Kong film director; Mr. William FENG, Head of Greater China and Vice-President of Asia Pacific, The Motion Picture Association (MPA); Ms. Amy LIU, Partner, EntGroup; Mr. CT YIP, Executive Director, Media Asia Group Holdings Limited & CEO, Lai Sun Group; Mr. YA Ning, Senior Vice-President, iQIYI and CEO, iQIYI Motion Pictures; Mr. CHEN Yiqi, Chairman, Sil-Metropole Organisation Ltd; Ms. Ann AN, Chairman, Desen International Media; Mr. Dagan POTTER, Production Lead, Oriental Dreamworks; Mr. William PFEIFFER, Executive Chairman & Co-Founder, Globalgate Entertainment; and Dr. MA Runsheng, Former President, China Radio, Film and Television Program Exchange Center & Vice-President, China Television Drama Production Industry Association. They analyzed the opportunities and challenges for China’s movie business in the coming years and how industry players can make the most out of such co-operation in the “co-production 3.0 era”.
