Shanghai International Film Festival

Dates: June 11st - 19th, 2016
Place: Shanghai, China

The Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF), founded in 1993, is China’s only non-specialized competitive international film festival accredited by FIAPF.

China’s film industry is growing rapidly as the entertainment industry becomes truly globalized. SIFF devotes itself to building up an international platform with four main programs including Competition, SIFF Mart, SIFFORUM, and International Film Panorama. Its aim is to promote the development of China’s film industry and enhance cooperation with the rest of the world.

Supported by the booming economy and rising international status, Chinese film has drawn attention from around the world for its role in lifting the country’s soft power. Every June, the Shanghai International Film Festival is a must-see event for filmmakers and has enhanced its reputation for presenting a multicultural film fair.
