The Distribution and Exhibition of Chinese and Asian Cinema in the UK
A Chinese Film Forum UK Symposium
28th – 29th March 2012
Cornerhouse, Manchester

Enthusiasts for Asian cinema often bemoan the fact that hardly any of the films they love find their way onto UK cinema screens. This symposium provides a forum that brings together filmmakers, academics and professionals working in various areas of film distribution and exhibition to discuss the issues and challenges facing those interested in broadening the availability of various forms of Chinese and Asian cinema for UK audiences.

The Chinese Film Forum UK is an AHRC-supported research network founded to support and facilitate the promotion and discussion of films from across the Chinese diaspora. It is a joint venture between the University of Manchester, University of Salford, Manchester Metropolitan University, Confucius Institute, Chinese Arts Centre and Cornerhouse.
