Consuming Chinese Cinemas in the 21st Century

23rd - 24th January 2013 University of Amsterdam and International Film Festival Rotterdam

Funded by the Leverhulme Trust’s International Networks scheme, the project “Chinese Cinemas in the 21st Century: Production, Consumption, Imagination” aims to promote new ways of thinking about the study of Chinese cinemas by bringing together established scholars into a dynamic network that crosses disciplinary boundaries, drawing expertise from film studies, media and communications, comparative literature, and cultural studies. The Network provides a unique opportunity to forge links not just between individual scholars but also leading research centres and institutions, thereby laying the foundation for world-class collaborative research.
