The filmmaking industry in China has undergone tremendous development in recent years. The number of feature movies produced has increased from 140 in 2003 to 618 in 2014. The box office in 2014 has reached a peak of 6.5 billion Singapore dollars (29.6 billion renminbi), just falling behind USA in terms of revenue worldwide. With the double push on the quantity and box office, many outstanding young filmmakers has emerged in China and at the same time it has attracted many overseas directors surging in to make movies. What are the challenges and opportunities faced by the local and overseas directors making movies in China? We have invited 2 directors from China, Xin Yukun, Zhang Bingjian and a director from Malaysia, Ho Widing to share with us their experiences of making movies in China. The panel is moderated by David Lee, Vice Chairman of the Singapore Film Society.

中国的电影事业近十余年来风起云涌。剧情片的生产量从2003年的140部提高至2014年的618部。2014年电影总票房高达65亿新元(296亿人民币),是全球仅次于美国的第二大电影票房市场。在电影产量和票房的推动下,中国电影一方面年青导演人才辈出,另一方面,如磁铁般吸引着外地导演进入中国开拓新事业。那么中国年青导演在此时进入电影产业,面对那些不得不面对的困难又有什么得天独厚的地方,外地导演到中国拍片,有那些水土不服的问题,又有什么让他乐不思蜀的原故。且让中国导演忻钰坤(《殡棺》, 2014)、张秉坚(《东北偏北》2014)、马来西亚导演何蔚庭《温水蛤蟆》(《水煮金蟾》),在座谈会由主持人李富楠穿针引线下打开话匣子说出他们对中国电影产业的观察与了解。
