Introduction to the film festival

The inaugural festival was conducted in 2019 and ran for 3 days. It included workshops, masterclasses, experiential booths, screenings, Q&A with filmmakers, as well as a gala awards night. Unfortunately, the festival was put on hold in 2020 & 2021 due to the pandemic. The festival returned in early 2022 in a hybrid format, with some live workshops & screenings on-campus and in cinema halls with some other events being streamed online. Back again now in 2023, the festival will continue in hybrid mode, with live in-person workshops and screenings, as well as a selection of online streaming webinars. 2023 Workshop dates: 8th-9th March 2023 Link to register: TBC 2023 Screening & Awards ceremony: 10th March 2023.Sfilmmaker is our exclusive platform for cooperation in China, and we look forward to your good film.
