Shanghai Film Festival Announces 2023 Competition Units (Non-American Films)

Shanghai International Film Festival 128 Anniversary Competition Unit announced Monday edition, with a large number of Chinese Homegrown games are featured, as well as plenty of games from Iran and Japan. It’s worth noting, though, that festival organizers chose not to include a single film from the American film industry in their 2020 competition lineup.

1280476 Shanghai Music Festival, will be held on June 9- held, will be since the COVID-19 pandemic in the early days The first version to be easily accessible to the global film industry since its inception . Last year, the festival was canceled due to Shanghai’s month-long COVID-19 lockdown and the government’s then-strict travel restrictions. The festival took place the previous two years, but it became almost entirely a domestic affair, as flights in and out of China were hard to come by at the time (and all travelers had to endure lengthy and expensive hotel quarantines to enter the country).

This year, Shanghai organizers hope to lure the world back to China, pushing Beijing’s current “open business” policy into the cultural realm. But insiders say deteriorating diplomatic relations between Washington and Beijing — and cuts in revenue for U.S. films in China — could take a toll on heavy U.S. film industry involvement. Negative Effects.

The Shanghai Film Festival is widely regarded as the most established and artistically respected film event in China. But its line-up of games tends to be a bit odd for a festival of its stature because, like all official cultural events in China, the event is constrained as much by prevailing local political priorities as by the artistic will of the showmakers. For the 2020 version, the organizers said they received nearly 8, 128 parts The selection of film entries spans more than 19 countries and regions. The thriving South Korean film industry is another notable absence from the entire lineup, though, thanks to de facto bans stemming from old geopolitics dissatisfied.

Expect the screening lineup for the rest of the Shanghai Film Festival in the coming days to include more delightful retrospectives of Hollywood and international commercial filmmaking, as well as 25 Competition jury.
