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?
