Beijing officials, Chinese film industry leaders to attend U.S.-China Film Summit
A large group of both Beijing government officials and private Chinese film industry leaders are expected to attend the U.S.-China Film Summit in Los Angeles on Nov. 2.
Talk of co-productions that skirt the government import cap as a means to growth is at a fever pitch, especially as France, New Zealand and Singapore all signed film treaties with China in the last eight months.
Hoping the summit will avoid getting embroiled in trade politics, Shiao said he would nonetheless raise at its outset China’s March 2011 deadline.
This is to show that it is moving to comply with a recent World Trade Organization ruling, which demands overseas companies greater participation in China’s market for copyrighted entertainment content.
