Cannes Film Festival hosts summit in Hangzhou
International and Chinese TV professionals gathered in Hangzhou last week for the MIP China Summit Hangzhou, an event organized by the Cannes Film Festival.
Marche International des Programmes (MIP) China Hangzhou International Content Summit brought Chinese and Western companies together to develop new programs across genres. Forums, meetings and a three-day conference for TV executives highlighted opportunities for cooperation.
This year, more than 100 companies from 20 countries and regions attended the summit, 15 percent up. During the event held from June 5 to June 7, organizers hosted 784 face-to-face meetings.
“Chinese films and TV programs are being recognized by audiences in other countries,” said Laurie Garande, director of the TV division of Reed MIDEM. “MIP summit is about internalization of Chinese content and building a bridge for exchanges.”
