MPAA Partners with Chinese Government for Screening Series

The Chinese government is trying to rein in the influence of pop culture, but today its film bureau and leading production company announced a Washington screening series in a co-sponsorship with the MPAA.

The showcase will be of U.S. and China co-productions, including “Love in Space,” “Shanghai,” “Red Cliff (parts 1 and 2),” “Waiting in Beijing” and “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan.” The producer of “Snow Flower,” Wendi Murdoch, plans to attend a special screening of that film.

The screenings will take place on Nov. 1 and 2 at the MPAA screening room. Public screenings will be held at Kentlands Stadium 10 cinemas in the greater Washington area.

MPAA chairman Chris Dodd said that he wants to build on the relationship between the Chinese film industry and U.S. studios, “so that it can form the foundation for a world class film and cultural sector.”

Tong Gang, director-general of the film bureau of he State Administration of Radio, Film & Television, will head the Chinese delegation attending the opening screening. He said in a statement that “together with Hollywood’s vast experience in both the making and marketing of movies, we can be model collaborators in producing world class movies that appeal to a global audience.”
