 2015 UMFF " Co-Production With China" Panel
China's limitations on the annual number of Hollywood movies allowed to be distributed within China has meant a huge boost to the production and success of domestic films. China's film revenues have grown by 25% a year for the past 10 years. How can Western filmmakers participate in this growth? Is there a window of opportunity for the West? And if so, what are the pitfalls, common misunderstandings, and industry myths? The panelists will attempt to address these issues during the discussion
