7th French Film Panorama in China

In April, Unifrance is hosting the 7th French Film Festival in China - 2010 in partnership with the French Embassy in China.

From April 1 through 30, 2010, Unifrance and theAmbassade de France - Chine are hosting the 7th French Film Panorama in China, to be held in Canton, Chengdu, Wuhan, Beijing, and Shanghai.

The festival line-up, which was put together in cooperation with the Chinese film industry authorities, includes 13 feature films and 12 short films. Chinese audiences will have the opportunity to discover, in a variety of cinemas and multiplexes, the latest offerings from French filmmakers, reflecting a diversity of genres for which French cinema is renowned. Screenings will be followed by discussions with audiences. All films will be presented in original version with Chinese subtitles. The following films will be showcased at the event: In the Beginning by Xavier Giannoli, Park Benches by Bruno Podalydès, Welcome to the Sticks by Dany Boon, Tomorrow at Dawn by Denis Dercourt (in his presence as well as that of Vincent Perez), Please, Please Me! by Emmanuel Mouret (in his presence), Kerity la maison des contes by Dominique Monféry, The Hedgehog by Mona Achache (in her presence as well as that of Josiane Balasko), Cartagena by Alain Monne, Mademoiselle Chambon by Stéphane Brizé (in his presence), Hidden Diary by Julie Lopez-Curval (in her presence), The Father of My Children by Mia Hansen-Löve (in the presence of Louis-Do and Alice de Lencquesaing), Little Nicolas by Laurent Tirard, and Une semaine sur deux by Ivan Calbérac (in his presence). Two programs of short films will also be presented: 7.57 am-pm, Le Bureau des jours perdus, Le Lit près de la fenêtre, Self Defense, Tous les enfants s'appellent Dominique, Toute ma vie pour l’un, Allons-y! Alonzo!, French Roast, L'Homme qui dort, La Saint Festin, Le Petit Dragon, and Masques pour l’autre.

The artistic delegation, composed of around ten actors and directors, as well as a feature film producer and a short film producer, will be in China from April 10 through 17. The delegation will spend two days in Canton, before separating into two groups to travel to Chengdu and Wuhan for a day. They will reunite in Beijing for three days, with a final day in Shanghai to complete their visit. Each city involved in the Panorama will organize a Gala Evening, with the evening in Beijing hosted in collaboration with Hunan TV, one of China's biggest national satellite bouquets. The representatives of the films present at the event will take part in promoting their films with the Chinese media, and will participate in meetings with audiences and "Cinema Lessons" held for the Chinese public.

This initiative to promote French films to local buyers, the media, and Chinese audiences will offer a fresh perspective on current French filmmaking, with the aim of boosting the visibility of French productions in the Chinese market. Following last year's Panorama, four films were released with successful results. The Valet, Les Deux Mondes, Female Agents, and Transporter 3, together generated €10 million at the box office. Audiences in 2010 are eagerly awaiting the release of Arthur and the Revenge of Maltazard, Don't Look Back, Largo Winch, Skate or Die, and Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky.
