Chinese American Film Festival 2012 - Richard Anderson
In 2011, the Academy for International Communication of Chinese Culture (AICCC) conducted a survey of international views toward Chinese cinema. The AICCC concluded that foreign audiences simply don't understand Chinese films and culture. To discuss this, AICCC selected five films that provided popular in China. At USC five AICCC scholars will discuss these films and other issues with American specialists.
Jointly established by Beijing Normal University and International Data Group (IDG) , the Academy for International Communication of Chinese Culture aims to introduce and disseminate Chinese culture worldwide more effectively and contribute to a harmonious world culture through solid, in-depth research and art works with Chinese characteristics by effectively integrating resources from Beijing Normal University, IDG, relevant government departments, enterprises, non-profit organizations and communities.
