About Filming East Festival
The Filming East Festival is a registered arts charity in the U.K. The aim of the organisation is to promote Chinese language film in the UK and in the West, while providing a platform for Sino-foreign communications and collaboration in the film industries.
Founded in 2007 and sponsored by the UK Film Council, the 1st Filming East Festival took place in Oxford, England. The Lord Mayor of Oxford opened the festival and Ms Yixi Sun was appointed as the festival director.
In 2009, the Filming East Festival partnered with the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) and co-presented the “Focus on China” programme of film premieres and forum discussions.
Since 2012, the Filming East Festival has become a long-term partner of the British Film Institute (BFI), raising awareness of Chinese cinema to the British and international audiences.
The Filming East Festival screens films that reflect the cultural richness and diversity of Chinese speaking regions. To date, we have screened hundreds of feature films in the UK and have gained an ever increasing audience. Our partners in the film industry and in the press extend over many cities in the UK, supporting our successful delivery of film showcase and forums.
In 2018, we expand our services to provide international PR for Chinese language films and PR consultancy for foreign cinema to enter the Chinese market.
