Romanian movies made before 1990 are broadcast by China Movie Channel (CCTV-6), CCTV-6 Chairman Cao Yin (photo) told a meeting of visiting Romanian officials and CCTV-6 staff.
During the meeting, the sides discussed the possibility of signing a contract for the broadcasting of 45 Romanian movies by the CCTV-6.
Likewise, the Romanian delegation met representatives of China Film Group and China Film Promotion International, with the Romanian side expressing a wish to broadcast Chinese movies at the Romanian Film Library in Bucharest.
In fact, the Romanian Culture Institute (ICR) in Beijing initiated this spring a monthly programme of Romanian movies from the country’s National Film Archives (ANF) dedicated to the Chinese audience.
“No Romanian-Chinese co-productions exist, but hopefully in the future the Romanian producers will show interest in this matter, especially since China Film Studio holds an impressive technical and material endowment,” said the managing director of the National Filmmaking Centre (CNC), Anca Mitran, who made a presentation of the filmmaking industry of Romania, as well as film production and broadcasting.
The DACIN-SARA representative addressed the issue of reciprocity in the field of copyright.
According to the Chinese side, as many as 700 movies are made annually in China, grossing USD 100 million at the box-office.
The Romanian delegation’s schedule also included a visit to the China Film Studio’s production studios, one of the largest in Asia.
The meeting of the Romanian filmmaking officials with the Chinese officials was part of a first edition of the Romanian Film Festival in China, going on in Beijing, Shanghai and Xi’an, 14-24 November, organised by ICR. The event is based on a protocol signed back in 2014 by the National Filmmaking Centre (CNC) of Romania and the State Administration for the Press, Publications, Radio, Film and Television of China.
The Romanian delegation included film directors Dan Pita, Catalin Mitulescu, Serban Marinescu, Doru Nitescu, Nicolae Margineanu; actors Ada Condeescu and Dorel Visan; producer Bogdan Moncea (director of Castel Film); Bogdan Ficeac (managing director of DAClN-SARA); Carmen Mitran (managing director of CNC); Carmen Tripadus, director of Cinemagix, and Tibi H., director of the Romanian-Chinese House.
