Chinese filmmakers are breaking box office records in China, already the world's second largest film market. Yet they're still struggling to find audiences abroad. Please join The Royal Asiatic Society China, Beijing Branch, for a panel discussion by three foreign experts on Chinese films' attempts to conquer foreign audiences. Li Chow, Isabelle Glachant and Maria A. Ruggieri each will draw on more than a decade's worth of work experience in China -- ranging from co-productions with US studios to independent cinema distribution to international festival competitions -- in order to assess what's worked, what hasn’t and what’s coming next. The event will be moderated by long-time China correspondent Laura Daverio.



Li CHOW: Since 1996 she’s been Chief Representative and Managing Director of Sony Pictures Entertainment-China, film production company and International distributor representing major studios labels as Columbia Pictures, Tristar Films, and Screen Gems. Previously she worked in South America for Warner Brothers, Disney/Sony Picture (joint venture) and eventually joined Sony Picture as marketing manager in Columbia.

Isabelle GLACHANT: Independent producer and representative of Unifrance in China. She's worked on a long list of movies, including "Shanghai Dreams" (Wang Xiaoshuai, 2005, Jury Prize, Cannes), “Lost in Beijing” (Li Yu, 2007, Competition Berlin) "City of life and Death” (Lu Chuan, 2009, Best film San Sebastian). Her company Asian Shadows is a sales agent for Asian movies abroad. In 2012 she was made Knight of the Art and Lettery by the French Ministry of Culture.

Maria A. RUGGIERI - A student at the Beijing Film Academy in the '90's, she's worked as China correspondent for European Film Festivals (Venice Int'l Film Festival, Locarno Int'l Film Festival, Udine Far East Film Festival). She organized the first N.I.C.E. (New Italian Cinema Events) film festival in China, consulted for the Beijing International Film Festival, and has authored several publications on Chinese films. Since 2007 she's worked as Media Project Manager for Meta Consulting.
