Dick Cook Studios and Chinese state owned enterprise CITIC Guoan are to present a new China-U.S. Motion Picture Summit, to be held in China in March.

The event is backed by China Media Culture Promotion Association and the Beijing Film Academy, with Winston Baker, which organizes its own Film Finance Forum series, as conference producer. It will be held on March 25, 2016 in Grand Epoch City, a new resort destination near Beijing .

“The summit will bring together top executives, award-winning filmmakers, writers, technology leaders, and corporate delegates to address industry trends and strategies for success between the Chinese and US entertainment businesses,” organizers said. Speakers have not yet been announced.

“The China-U.S. Motion Picture Summit is another major step encouraging the Chinese film industry to communicate and participate in the international market,” said Li Dongdong, director general of the CMCPA and a member of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. Her organization is a link between the State Administration of Press Publication, Radio, Film and Television (SAPPRFT), and the media and culture industries.

Former Disney chairman, Dick Cook launched Dick Cook Studios in March of last year with a $150 million investment from CITIC Guoan, a conglomerate that is part of the massive CITIC group.
