Hollywood players discuss future of Chinese cinema


07-30-2014 23:39 BJT

As China's appetite for the film industry grows, more and more forums are needed to facilitate better understanding between Hollywood and China.

Already the second largest film market in the world, China's film industry has been rising at an unprecedented speed in the past few years. Tuesday's forum sees the establishment of a new subcommittee, which will address critical issues facing the Chinese film industry.

Hosted by DMG entertainment and the China Film Association, the forum examines trends and dynamics impacting the Hollywood-China collaboration. Prominent Hollywood industry leaders like Paul Schwake, executive producer of "World War Z" and "Star Trek", and Evan Daugherty, writer of "Snowhite and the Huntsman", are in attendance.

During the panel discussion, Schwake continues talking about why Hollywood is the example to follow.

Meanwhile, exporting Chinese culture and stories is a challenging task. Even though some familiar Chinese stories, like the Monkey King and Romance of the Three Kingdoms, have been told to foreign audiences, Chinese filmmakers still haven't been able to fully crack the code. 

Both Schwake and Daugherty hope to collaborate with Chinese studios in the coming years, and to help better foster the Chinese film industry.
