Film Festivals & Awards 11th Oct 2017 Media Source Africa

Earlier this year the Cape Town International Film Market and Festival announced its collaboration with the China-Africa International Film Festival (CAIFF) that aims to strengthen the exchange of learning culture between China and Africa. The festival is hosted by China Radio International and the Beijing Film Academy, and  organised by Global Max MediaGroup (GMMG) and the African Oriental Post Group.


The partnership will not only introduce Chinese cinema to South Africa and vice versa, it is hoped that the new festival will encourage cooperation in the film sector, making Chinese and African films more available in one-another's regions. As part of these efforts a host of events have been announced to take place from the 16th of October.


The official Opening Ceremony for the Festival will take place at the One & Only Hotel on the evening of October 16th. Speaking at the event will be Mr Cao Li, Acting Consul General of the Chinese Consulate-General in Cape Town, Mr Zhang Jian, Deputy Chairman of Academy Council of Beijing Film Academy, Mr Luo Xubing, Deputy Director of Overseas Promotion at China Radio International, Ms Wan Minfang, Producer of the Chinese film “When Africa Meets You”, Mr Miles Nan, President of GMMG, and Ms Tao Hong, Image Ambassador of China Africa International Film Festival.


This red-carpet event will also see the screening of the Chinese Film, Love Beyond Eternity.
