The Chinese government has announced that it will launch an official English-language website www.chinesefilms.cn to provide information on Chinese-language films and the Chinese film industry.
The website is co-established by the Film Bureau under State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) and Chinese Radio International (CRI), a state-owned radio broadcast company which broadcasts radio programs globally outside of China.
China Film Promotion International (CFPI), a state-owned promotion and sales company under the China Film Group, and CRI website will be operating the website.
The website offers information such as news, reviews, interviews, industry information on Chinese-language films and Chinese film policies. Most of the industry information is about mainland Chinese companies or institutions while film news covers the greater China region including Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia. In the future, CFPI also plans to provide online Chinese film screenings, online forum, and a database on the website.g
