What’s It All About?

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF), a non-specialised competitive international film festival. This year, the festival has seen 2,528 film entries from 106 countries and regions, a new record in its history. Among these films, more than 400 will be selected to constitute the list of Film Panorama and some of them will be shortlisted for various sections of the Golden Goblet Awards. This year, a new Short Films category has been created.

Romanian director Cristian Mungiu, who was awarded the Palme d’Or at Cannes, will be the chairman of the jury for the 20th SIFF’s Golden Goblet Awards. The festival also released the name list of a batch of acclaimed films to be screened during the 4k Restoration film unit.

The classic movies which have been remastered digitally in 4K include David Lynch’s Eraserhead, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me; Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai; King Hu’s Legend of the Mountain; Mel Gibson’s Braveheart; Arthur Penn’s Bonnie And Clyde; and Michael Mann’s Heat.

 Indian Connect

SIFF and Mumbai Film Festival (MFF) will be collaborating this year to showcase native films in the other party’s film festival in order to enhance the mutual understanding of both countries’ film cultures. The official selections for the festival are yet to be announced.

 SIFF Film Market

SIFF Film Market is a diversified international market from a wide range of premium exhibitors from film financing, production, post-production, SFX, VFX, distribution, marketing, legal service and games. A friendly environment and various activities make the Film Market an ideal space for exhibition and business.

 Watch Out For!

Opening Film

Our Time Will Come, directed by Ann Hui, produced by BONA Film Group, will be screened as the opening film for the 2017 SIFF. Set in the 1940s, it tells a legendary story of how a guerrilla group led by a remarkable woman, Fang Lan (Zhou Xun), rescued hundreds of people from the cultural elite from Japanese-occupied Hong Kong. It also portrays the fight and struggle for freedom and independence by youths of the resistance groups.

 Jackie Chan Action Movie Week

Since 2015, Jackie Chan Action Movie Week has been held as a regular sector of the Shanghai International Film Festival. It comprises a series of activities including Action Movie Opening Forum, Action Movie Screening and Assessment, and Jackie Chan Action Movie Week Gala Night.
