Between 10th May and 10th June 2022, apart from showcasing more than 60 films to our audience, Odyssey: a Chinese cinema season will also be hosting 10 discussion panels, exploring aspects of UK-China film collaboration and other topics such as regional cinemas and the role of female film programmers in China.
At the current turbulent time, where misunderstandings lead to complex geopolitics and tension, it is the private and the public sector’s responsibility to maintain some sort of conversation and exchange of ideas. Creative collaboration must not stop, nor cultural exchange on a personal level. Last year we achieved a huge success for our cutting edge panels, with more than 500 attendees participating in total. This year we will charge on to bring you another 10 brand new topics.
We hope that these panels will inspire a wider intellectual, creative and commercial discussion around film collaborations between the UK, Greater China and beyond.
