A new theme park based on films from around the world is to be built in Haikou, the capital of Hainan province.
The park will provide galleries for 100 countries to display their cinematic history and regularly screen films from these countries. The facilities will also be used for related film production, investment, and publicity, according to Chen Luxi, the main investor in the project.
This new attraction is planned to be partially opened in 2022.
Separately, an international short film competition will be launched in June in Haikou.
Film director Jiang Xiaoyu, who is in charge of program, said about 100 short film production teams, of up to five people each, from around the world, will attend the event. They will be given one week to shoot and make a short film in the same location. Ten winners will have their work edited into film, which is to be screened in cinemas later.Responsible editor： 胥圣兰
