Sponsored by Intellect
Intellect is proud to be one of the sponsors of the 6th China Image Film Festival in London. The publisher’s representative will be meeting the audience, filmmakers, actors, actresses, film critics and academics at the opening ceremony on the 18th November. 
The 6th Europe China Image Film Festival will be launched in London from November 18th to 25th, 2014. Founded in 2009, ECIFF is the largest and most highly attended Chinese film festival in Europe. With the target of “China Image, Move the World”, ECIFF has been committed to serving as a platform between Chinese films and European audiences. Also, as an important bridge that connects Chinese films and the international film industry, this year ECIFF continues to perform as a platform for the cooperation, coproduction and joint venture between Chinese and European film industries.
This year, Europe China Image Film Festival comes back with four highlights:
Highlight 1: A Charity Blockbuster as the Opening Film
One Day, the 3-million-budget (RMB) film, is selected as the opening film. Starred by the A-list Chinese stars such as Zhou Xun, Siqin Gaowa, Xu Fan and Han Geng, this non-profit film is composed of nine stories of the different life of children. Connected loosely with each other, all of these nine storylines have focused on one theme: the power of love in Children’s growth.
Highlight 2: Two Film Industry Forums
Two forums on the film industry will be held on the 19th and 20th November: Eu-China Co-Production Forum & Co-Production Project Pitch, Youth Film Forum. European investors show interest in the Chinese market after the Chinese co-production policy with UK/EU has gradually relaxed; the Chinese film industry would benefit through cooperation projects with the advanced technology, talents, and production procedure from the European film industry, in order to raise the quality and diversity in film-making, as well as to expand the promotional and distribution channels. Besides, the Youth Film Forum focuses on three parts: China-UK film & TV talent development and training; China-UK film & TV exchange project for young talents; and China-UK young generation film-makers – experience sharing and co-operation opportunities.
Highlight 3A Star-Studded Award Ceremony
In the Award Ceremony, many Chinese film stars will come to London and attend the ceremony.
