Award-Winning Chinese Childrens' Films Screening in Hollywood

China will be making its' first appearance at the 15th Annual International Family Film Festival, (IFFF) scheduled for March 10-14 at Raleigh Studios located at 5300 Melrose Avenue, Hollywood, California (corner of Melrose and Van Ness). IFFF is a film and screenplay competition that promotes the sharing of family films through exhibition, adjudication and education. It brings the worldwide family together through shared stories and community.
China and the Chinese film community have been participating in the IFFF over the last fifteen years. This year they are sending 14 of their award-winning children’s films as well as a delegation of actors, directors, producers and studio heads to the Festival forming a Chinese film delegation. Of the 19 countries whose films have been accepted to the festival, China leads in number and variety of submissions and size of delegation.
The Festival opens on Wednesday, March 10 with a day dedicated to the Chinese Film block. There will be screenings of 9 of the award-winning films from 1:00 - 7 PM culminating in a welcoming reception at 7:30PM for the visiting film artists from across China. Film stars and creators will be present before and after each screening for a Q&A. In addition to the special block, 6 films will be shown on Thursday March 11, 2 films each day on Friday, Saturday and Sunday (March 12 through March 14). The film artists will also be present at each of these screenings for a post film discussion with the audience.

One of the highlights of the Festival is a Panel Discussion with the visiting Chinese Film team on Saturday, March 13 at 12:30 PM entitled “Producing Films in China”. The Panel will be composed of studio executives, producers, and lawyers as well as the featured panelist, Mr. Huaizhi Chen, the Los Angeles China Consulate. Members of the Chinese team will also participate in the Distribution Panel.
The Festival ends on Sunday, March 14 with the Screenwriting Panel Discussion and the Screenwriters Showcase where there is a reading of the finalist scripts which includes a script from a Chinese scriptwriter. The Festival culminates at the Awards Ceremony and Buffet Dinner beginning at 6:00 PM, Sunday, March 14th.
