CIFA is interested not just in films but in film culture more broadly. As part of this work, the archive is collecting and promoting Chinese independent film criticism. Our website has four regular critics who produce columns for us: academic Bao Hongwei; film director Wu Wenguang; film director and founder of Fanhall, Zhu Rikun; and critic and scholar Wang Xiaolu. Please access the material at Columns. We have also set up “Critics’ Collections”, where we collect the work of those influential critics/scholars who have written about Chinese independent cinema over a long period of time.
Please join Luke Robinson (University of Sussex) and our four columnists on January 16 to discuss their columns, why they write, and the importance of independent film criticism in China.
Simultaneous translation in both English and Chinese will be provided.
