A global event

Letter to the editor

I read with interest the recent article and column by Peter Bart suggesting that the Shanghai International Film Festival will become a “local” event.

Since its founding in 1993, the Shanghai Film Festival has always been organized strictly according to the regulations of the International Federation of Film Producers and has received an “A” grade. Every year the festival carefully selects the competing films and the jury members from all over the world. Over 85% of the artists are from overseas. Of the 200 films to be screened in 17 venues beginning next month, approximately 160 will be foreign films. The viewers watching nearly 560 screenings will be from the U.S., Japan, Europe, Africa and China.

When the curtain rises on the Shanghai Film Festival on June 8, my colleagues and I at the festival will welcome the world to a truly “international” event.
