China film festival returns to Singapore
A selection of five Chinese feature films will debut in Singapore’s cinemas as part of the 2011 China Film Festival. The screenings will take place alongside ScreenSingapore this June.
The five films include award winners, and box-office successes, including the country’s most expensive animated film. The selection presents a snapshot of China’s vibrant and diverse film industry and highlight a new generation of filmmakers exploring a variety of genres including romance, drama and animation.
The five-day China Film Festival will open on June 6 with the critically acclaimed Deep in the Clouds, a love story set in the remote mountains directed by Liu Jie, which swept four awards at the 13th Shanghai International Film Festival last year.
It will close on June 10 with Eternal Moment, a box office hit in China directed by Zhang Yibai and produced by popular actor Li Yapeng, who also starred in the film opposite top-rated actress Xu Jinglei.
