The Chinese film industry has taken several steps up the ladder of success with her large number of high quality Chinese movies being produced every year. These films either produced by China’s own production companies and also international companies are highly accessible and enjoyable for the Western audiences as well. This being the motive, the Filming East Festival backed by the UK Film Council is an annual film festival which brings the attention of film watching British citizens towards Chinese movies. The festival is also supported by the Bank of China, Screen South, BAFTA, and many other bodies.
