CONTENT CREATION PANEL - Crossing Over: Content Creation in China & America


Join the 2018 Los Angeles Chinese Film Festival (LACFF) and listen to their panel of Emmy award winning writers, actors, and producers discuss content creation in China and the US.

American shows and films have been popular with Chinese audiences for many years. Recently, since Netflix’s purchase of the overseas copyright of Day and Night (2017) and The Rise of Phoenixes (2018), an increasing number of Chinese shows and films have come to the attention of U.S. audiences. What are the differences in the content creation processes between Chinese and American screenwriters? What inspires them to tell their stories in the media? What challenges are they facing in creating their stories?

Moderator: Andrew Hu

The Los Angeles Chinese Film Festival

The Los Angeles Chinese Film Festival is the only festival in LA to focus on independent Chinese culture and heritage films, and aims to foster cultural exchange through screenings and other entertainment related activities.

With this in mind, every year, LACFF curates a collection of high-quality original films from around the world, with an emphasis on works produced by the Chinese language-speaking/heritage community. Films with cast or crew from these groups, or featuring the culture of these groups in a meaningful way, are eligible for festival submissions. LACFF extends a special welcome to newcomers and independent filmmakers, and serves as a platform for independent Chinese cinema.

The LACFF is organized by Chinese in Entertainment (CIE), a Los Angeles-based non-profit organization that supports Chinese talent and culture in entertainment and the arts.
