Actress Joan Chen at the Cinema Palace in Venice for the Venice International Film Festival earlier. She has been chosen for this year's festival as a jury member for the main competition section.
Has the inclusion of Chinese judges at global film festivals been a boost to the country's growing movie industry? The results are suggestive Air Vapormax Womens , but experts have mixed views, Wang Kaihao reports.

When the organizing committee of the 71st Venice International Film Festival, which will open on Aug 27, recently announced its jury list, Chinese people were glad but unsurprised to see familiar faces again appointed to the panel.

Joan Chen, who became famous in the West when she played the female lead in The Last Emperor (1987), has been chosen for the jury of the main competition. This is the second time this Hollywood veteran from China has been a judge at one of the big three European film festivals. She was on the Berlin Film Festival jury in 1995.

Chen revealed during a recent interview with Tencent that she was invited last year to join the jury led by Bernardo Bertolucci Air Vapormax Shoes , director of The Last Emperor, but failed to complete the trip due to her full schedule.

"I've come to the festival many times," she said. "But it feels different being a judge than bringing my own works. I won't have that much pressure and will be able to enjoy movies of high quality."

Director Ann Hui (carried) at a promotional event for her new movie The Golden Era.

Hong Kong director Ann Hui, best known for her handling of stories about women and social issues, will join the jury for the Orizzonti section (Horizons), which is open to all "custom-format" works, with "a wider view toward new trends in the expressive languages that converge in film".

Her latest biographical movie The Golden Era Air Vapormax For Sale , about Chinese author Xiao Hong (1911-42), will be the festival's closing film.

Vivian Qu, producer of this year's Golden Bear-winner Black Coal, Thin Ice, joined the panel to pick a winner for the Lion of the Future, an award for debut films. Her own directoral debut, Trap Street Air Vapormax Flyknit , was the only Asian movie competing for this award in Venice last year.

Chinese faces appeared in juries for the big three European competitions for the first time in 1983, when director Huang Zongjiang attended the Berlin International Film Festival.

At that time, he was one of the few Chinese filmmakers who could speak English, which is necessary to work as a judge. Huang is best-known for his The Story of Liubao Village in 1957.

It is hard to know if more involvement of Chinese filmmakers will give Chinese movies an advantage among judging panels at such top film screenings in Europe.

When actress Gong Li joined the jury of the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, the New Wave icon from Hong Kong, Wong Kar-wai, was named best director for his highly praised Happy Together Air Vapormax , depicting a turbulent romance between two men.

Gong also led the jury at Berlin in 2000, when director Zhang Yimou, her longtime collaborator and former lover, got the Silver Bear for the nostalgic and romantic drama The Road Home. And, when Zhang led the jury at Venice in 2007, Lust, Caution won Ang Lee another Golden Lion only two years after Brokeback Mountain.

These awards are only a small part of a long list.

"The jury president usually won't interfere the group's decision Cheap Nike Vapormax , and will host the discussion in most cases," director Xie Fei, a 2001 member of the Berlin jury, told The Beijing News.

Beijing Bicycle, directed by Wang Xiaoshuai, won the Silver Bear that year.

"We had seven judges on the panel at the time. I didn't campaign for this movie, but several foreign judges liked it very much Nike Vapormax Sale ," Xie recalled.

However, Chen's presence on the jury has boosted expectations for Wang Xiaoshuai's thriller Red Amnesia, the only Chinese movie that has squeezed into the main competition section in Venice this year.

Meanwhile, Chinese pop-singer Zhang Liangying was invited to join the jury of Montreal World Film Festival, which will open later this month. The news came as a surprise to many because her performance resume is almost blank.

"Though the media began to notice people from Chinese cinema make frequent appearances on global film festival panels in recent years, it is not an overnight phenomenon," says Yang Jinsong Nike Vapormax Mens , a Beijing-based film critic and deputy head of Alibaba Pictures.

"Film festivals are reflections of the world's culture and arts involving different ethnic groups. China has such a large population, so its images are indispensable in these festivals, and it's also common to see Chinese faces among the juries."

Yang considers it an exaggeration to closely connect jury participation with the development of a country's film industry, though he says that those who headed such panels, like Gong Li, had gained strong recognition for personal achievements.

Unlike in Hollywood, Yang says: "The big three film festivals in Europe are not industry expositions Nike Vapormax Womens , and thus often choose independent films, which are only popular within small circles. The public should keep a neutral attitude when seeing Chinese filmmakers became popular on those occasions."

MILAN, Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- A giant golden bridge-shaped structure created by a modern Chinese artist was unveiled at the site of the ongoing Milan Expo on Monday.

The "Golden Bridge on Silk Road", measuring 28 meters in length and six meters in height, is intended to be interpreted as a cultural bridge between the East and the West, as well as a symbol of friendship, its designer Shu Yong said in an interview via telephone.

The 41-year-old artist referred to the structure of Zhaozhou Bridge when he started to build the artistic structure. Zhaozhou Bridge is a well-known bridge which was built over 1 Nike Vapormax Shoes ,400 years ago in north C
