Asian Side of the Doc is all about building bridges never an easy task. But between Asia and Europe there are so many stories to be told, so many similarities as well as differences. Our coproduction rendezvous has taken on an increasingly strategic dimension over the years as the stakes for the future become ever higher. As the center of gravity of the documentary world moves inexorably from the Atlantic to the Pacific basin, Asia is at the heart of our immediate future. For 25 years now we have been promoting international coproduction; and here again the message is one of encouragement for all forms of exchange and cooperation. Documentary co-productions are more numerous, varied and inventive – and the evidence is there on our screens.

 

 

Gao Feng
Chairman of the China Documentary Film Commission

Documentary film production in China has entered an unprecedented era of growth and development, attracting the attention of filmmakers the world over. We all look forward to seeing more Chinese voices and Chinese elements meet their global audience through documentary filmmaking.
