The 2016 Chinese Visual Festival Call for Entries is Now Closed 

CVF presents Chinese New Year at the BFI Southbank - tickets on sale now!

To celebrate the Year of the Monkey, Chinese Visual Festival is partnering with the BFI Southbank to screen Zhou Hao's amazing doc 'The Chinese Mayor', an acclaimed Sundance and Golden Horse Awards winner. This compelling and intimate documentary follows Mayor Geng Yanbo of Datong, a metropolis of 3.4 million in Shanxi province, with his frenetic determination to transform his declining coal-mining city into a tourism haven. In order to achieve this he must relocate half a million residences – instigating a head-on collision between progress, politics, corruption and citizens’ rights.
