Shanghai International Film Festival partners with Christie
CHINA: Christie will be supporting this year’s Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF) as the exclusive digital projection partner for the seventh year running. Taking place from June 17-19 2015, a Christie Solaria CP4230 DLP 4K projector will be used to screen the opening and closing films.
‘Christie is honoured to present this premium movie-screening experience to all the guests at this year’s SIFF,’ enthused Lin Yu, vice president of Christie Asia Pacific. ‘With over 85 years of experience in the movie industry, Christie’s digital cinema projectors have achieved illustrious success in the entertainment industry. Every year, the best film professionals around the world gather in Shanghai for this dazzling event and we are delighted to be associated with the SIFF, which is one of the most prominent film festivals in the world.’
SIFF is China’s only non-specialised competitive international film festival accredited by the Paris-based Fédération Internationale des Associations de Producteurs de Films (FIAPF). It will open with the screening of veteran Hong Kong director Derek Yee’s new film, I Am Somebody, while China-Russian co-production Ballet in the Flames of War will close the event.
