About the project:
In 2011, China's animation industry turned from decline to recovery, as 24 domestic animated films and 260,000 minutes of animation time marked that China's animation ushered in new opportunities for development. Over the past nine years, Chinese animators have been working with the Beijing International Film Festival to promote the prosperity of China's film industry and create the glory of the era of Chinese film culture in the 21st century.
At the beginning of 2019, Chinese animated films set sail, showing encouraging results in both industry indicators and box office indicators. The sustained support of national policies to the animation industry and the continuous cultivation of Chinese animators in the animation industry once again lead Chinese animation to a high-standard starting point of internationalization and industrialization. In order to promote the healthy, orderly and rapid development of China's animation industry and deal with the new challenges of internationalization and industrialization of China's animation industry, the School of Animation and Digital Art of China Media University, Animation and Digital Media Arts Committee under China University Film and Television Society, and Zhuoran Zhongtai Science and Technology Co., Ltd. will specially hold the Academic Parallel Session on “The Beijing International Film Festival: Production and Market–The Evolution of Chinese Animation Industry”.
