Filming East Festival
Founded in 2007, the first Filming East Festival is a registered art charity in the U.K., which screens films that reflect the cultural richness and diversity of Chinese speaking regions to promote Chinese language film in the UK and in the West, while providing a platform for Chinese-Western communications and collaboration in the film industries. To date, the festival has screened hundreds of feature films in the UK and has gained an ever-increasing audience, with partners in the film industry and in the press extending across cities in the UK, supporting its successful delivery of film exhibitions and forums.
