As one of the main forums of the BJIFF, the Summit on the Beauty of Film aims to explore the general rules of film aesthetics, the cultural & philosophic thoughts and literary & artistic mind behind films, the creation rules and aesthetic characters of film art, the relation between film art and other arts, the aesthetic value and social functions of film art, the psychological mechanism, process, features, significance and methods of film art and the aesthetic relation between filmgoers and film art. With the film industrial chain as the contents and the segments of film industry as topics, the summit will invite senior operators behind films to share their ideas, skills, achievements, experience and predictions for film development. 

  Boasting profound influences and good reputation in the film industry and among filmgoers and even all walks of life, the summit has now become an influential event of film culture. At the 10th BJIFF, “Opportunities and Challenges to the Film Industry” will be the theme of the summit.
