Chinese Visual Festival

About CVF

Chinese Visual Festival (CVF) is a leading cultural event showcasing the very best in contemporary cinema and art from around the Chinese language speaking world.

Featuring documentaries, fiction and experimental art from Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tibet and beyond, CVF brings audiences a carefully curated selection of the most cutting-edge and challenging works from new and established artists and directors alike.

Since its inception in 2011, CVF has brought to the UK a long list of prominent guests including Jia Zhangke, Cao Fei, Zhou Hao, Wu Wuna, Pema Tseden, Gu Tao, Yee Chih-yen and others, running panel sessions and workshops that make the festival a lively cultural forum which is educational as well as entertaining. With events throughout the year and regular collaborations with the British Film Institute, DocHouse and other organisations in the UK and around the world, CVF continues to go from strength to strength and is now firmly established as a popular fixture on the London cultural calendar.
