Bridging the Dragon is an association connecting European and Chinese film professionals. It organizes events at major international film festivals, provides networking opportunities and offers consultancy on producing films between Europe and China to its members.

The association's yearly Project Lab helps develop projects suitable for co-production between the two markets and aims to create a community of Sino-European film producers.

Through its network, Bridging the Dragon intends to contribute to a better understanding between the Chinese and European markets and to create stronger, better targeted content as well as new business collaborations.

Bridging the Dragon is the official partner of the Marché du Film of the Festival de Cannes and of the European Film Market of the Berlinale for their China events and has collaborated with festivals such as Locarno, Venice, Rome, Shanghai, Xi'an Silk Road and Xining FIRST.
