Sino-Italian Roundtable Forum for Fil
On October 27, as one of the main activities of the Hengdian Film Festival 2019, the Sino-Italian Roundtable Forum for Film and Television Exchange kicked off in Hengdian. Mauro Paolo Bruno, director of the Cultural and Economic Sector of Apulia, Italy, and Jiang Lingshu, member of the Standing Committee of Dongyang Municipal Committee and director of Dongyang’s publicity department, delivered speeches at the forum. Yin Xu, senior vice president of Hengdian Group, attended the forum.
The forum has acted as a bridge between the Chinese and Italian film and television industries and has created many opportunities for cooperation. The Italian representative spoke highly of the development and prospects of Hengdian’s film and television industry. He hopes to strengthen exchanges and cooperation with Hengdian and build broader platforms between the two parties in relevant fields for more mutual benefit.
During the 10th Bari International Film Festival in Italy in the first half of 2019, the Organizing Committee of the Hengdian Film Festival sent a delegation to Bari for meetings and exchanges at the invitation of the Apulia Film Commission and signed a memorandum of cooperation. The forum on October 27 was a return visit to Hengdian by the delegation of the Apulia Film Commission. (Translated by Jin Haiqiong, edited by Kendra Fiddler)
