Programme Announced for the Inaugural China Ireland International Film Festival
12 Jun 2019 : News Desk
CIIFF 2019
Marking 40 years since the beginning of diplomatic relations with China, the inaugural China Ireland International Film Festival will celebrate the cultures of both countries with a bi-annual film exchange.

The first part of the Festival will see a varied selection of Chinese films screened in Dublin, with a series of Irish films being screened in China in 2020.

The China ChangChun Film Group Corporation, one of the largest studios in China will present a selection of their highlights at the Festival, including Jackie Chan’s ‘1911; The Assassins’ starring Chow Yun-fat; Yazhou Yang’s ‘The Sun’ and two films by Xianhe Lei: ‘Cableway Doctor’ and ‘The Woman Behind The Man’.

Other acclaimed titles screening at the Festival include historical documentary ‘Mr Deng goes to Washington’ featuring a post-screening Q&A with director, Mr. Fu Hongxing and producer, Mrs. Lv Muzi; Xu Haofeng’s sumptuous adaptation of his book ‘The Sword Identity’ with a post-screening Q&A with DoP Mr. Meng Xiaoqing; as well as screenings of award-winning debuts ‘The Crossing’ by Bai Xue, ‘The Widowed Witch’ by Chengjie Cai and ‘A First Farewell’ by Wang Lina.

The programme will also see screenings of celebrated Irish films ‘Song of the Sea’ and ‘Once’, which will be travelling to China for the Chinese leg of the Festival, as well as programmes of Chinese and Irish shorts which will be judged for Festival awards.

Alongside the cultural exchange of screening films, there will be an industry exchange, with a delegation from China ChangChun Film Group Corporation, Jilin Television, and representatives from Screen Ireland and Culture Ireland hosting discussions on co-productions; Ireland as a filming location, and the opportunities for Irish films to enter the Chinese market after the increase in foreign film quotas.

The festival committee consists of Prof. Liming Wang (Director of UCD Confucius Institute for Ireland and Irish Institute for Chinese Studies), Teresa McGrane (Deputy Chief Executive of Screen Ireland), Olga Wang (First Secretary for Culture and Tourism of Chinese Embassy in Ireland), Gerry Shirren (Managing Director of Cartoon Saloon), Joe O’Byrne (Board Director of Writers Guild of Ireland), Adam Xiaoming Liu (Marketing Director of Ireland Chinese Journal), James Tianyu Zhao (CEO and Founder of Ireland Chinese Journal), Dou Sun (Founder and Planning Consultant of CIIFF) and Xiaoyu Xie (Lecturer of UCD Confucius for Ireland).

The China Ireland International Film Festival is organised by UCD Confucius Institute for Ireland and CIIFF Organizing Committee in association with ChangChun Film Group, Cartoon Saloon and Ireland Chinese Journal.

The Festival is supported by the Embassy of the People's Republic of China in Ireland, Information Office of People’s Government of Jilin Province, Culture Ireland, Screen Ireland, Screen Producers Ireland, Screen Directors Guild of Ireland and The Writers Guild of Ireland. Official Media partners are Ireland Chinese Journal and Nouvelles d'Europe.
