The 2nd Hainan Island International Film Festival will be held from December 1 to 8 in Sanya, officials announced at the ongoing Shanghai International Film Festival.

This year’s festival will officially launch a film competition and a project-exchange film market. Additionally, outdoor film screenings on the beach, film industry forums, and a film-shooting location exhibition will also be hosted.

It is the festival’s first year of competition. A total of 10 prizes will be presented to outstanding and creative feature-length films, feature-length documentaries and fiction shorts.

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, local film museums of the southern island province will also organize a special exhibition titled “Beginning From Film.”

The project-exchange market will be targeted at new Chinese-language film projects with big commercial potential. Cash prizes will be offered to the best projects.

Officials from the festival’s organizing committee said that they are also learning from the successful organization of the Shanghai International Film Festival.

The two film festivals will strengthen cooperation on film exhibition and market to boost the development of the Chinese film industry.
