This year marks the successful hosting of the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Beijing, which has become the first dual-Olympic city in history. As a platform to promote the world's understanding of China and promote cooperation between Chinese and foreign sports film and television culture, the Beijing International Sports Film Week is co-hosted by the Beijing Organising Committee for the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, the Chinese Olympic Committee and the Beijing Olympic City Development Association. Founded in 2005, it is an international cultural exchange activity in the field of sports, film and television during Beijing's preparation for the 2008 Olympic Games, which has been held for 18 years. It became important part of the Beijing Olympic City Sports Culture Festival in 2010. While introducing outstanding sports film & television works from around the world, it has transferred outstanding sports film & television works to "Sport Movies & TV-Milano International FICTS FEST-World Championship Final" each year, and received Mention d'Honneur a couple of times.
The Beijing International Sports Film Week has not only played a positive role in helping the Winter Olympics, but also gradually become a key bridge linking Chinese sports film & television culture to the world, contributing to inheriting Olympic legacy, telling Chinese stories and spreading Chinese sports culture worldwide.
On July 28, the 18th Beijing International Sports Film Week and the 40th World Championship Final (Beijing) of Federation Internationale Cinema Television Sportifs were held in Beijing, with the theme of "Dual-Olympic Games with Light and Shadow, Working Together for a Shared Future".
