Since 1993, China has celebrated its growing position on the world cinema stage at the Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF). This festival is held every June in the city. It is an exciting event that should feature on every film-lover's calendar.
There are four separate initiatives that make up the festival which is recognised and accredited by the International Federation of Film Producer's Association (FIAPF). Each of these recognises and celebrates the different aspects of film production, both within China and the wider global film industry. The first of these is the Competition section which awards two prizes, the Golden Goblet Award which is awarded to the best film overall, and the Asian New Talent Award which is designed to recognise and celebrate nascent talent within the region. This is the highlight of the festival and showcases a huge number of Asia's best new films.
Other events during the festival include SSIF Mart which is an opportunity for film-makers to meet producers, buyers and distributors from across the world. There is also SIFFORUM, which is an opportunity for film buffs to hear leading industry figures talk about their work, and the International Film Panorama which celebrates the best and latest in world cinema.
While some film festivals are reserved for invited guests, anyone can buy tickets to see the films and hear the lectures at SIFF, it truly is a film festival for everyone.
