Bridging The Dragon Project Market Makes Shanghai Debut

With the Shanghai festival set to open today, the first edition of the Sino-European project lab Bridging The Dragon comes to a close.

The four day residential workshop was held in Songjiang, Shanghai (June 10-13). It saw ten selected projects, five each from China and Europe, pitched, analysed and critiqued by a panel of experts.

Of particular importance in the context of attempting to make films that might straddle both European and Chinese markets were elements including story structure,
believability of the setting in relationship to the other co-producing side, and feasibility of the co-production.

Screenwriting tutors included Shu Huan, (“Lost in Thailand”), Alex Jia, chief creative officer of the Shanghai New Culture Media Group, Luigi Ventriglia (“Everlasting”), tutor at TorinoFilmLab, and Marietta von Hausswolff von Baumgarten. Production experts included Xian Su from DMG Entertainment, Synnove Horsdal from Maipo Film, independent producer Chi Cheung Kwong, Dongrong Zhu from SMG Pictures, Leontine Petit from Lemming Film and Isabelle Glachant from Chinese Shadows.

Bridging the Dragon will take advantage of the Shanghai festival’s ‘Project & Market’ to broker additional contacts and meetings for its project presenters.

A second part of the project lab will take place on August 4-7 during the Locarno Festival in Switzerland.
