How to sell your films to China? Has the movie taste of Chinese audience changed? Who is who in the China film world? How Chinese distribution works? When talking about the Chinese film market, everyone in Europe has questions and doubts. Considering that China has already surpassed the North America as the largest market in the world with box office exceeding US$7.6 billion a year, it is important for European producers to catch up with understanding this most exciting and still under-explored film world - China.

For this reason, Bridging the Dragon together with the European Film Market will host for the fifth consecutive year the Sino-European Production Seminar with the aim to give European producers a thorough understanding of the Chinese film industry.
