Chinese Visual Festival

Chinese New Year 2019 – CVF at BFI Southbank

Celebrate The Year of the Pig with CVF at BFI Southbank with a specially curated selection of the very best in recent Chinese language cinema.

Showcasing some of the very best of recent Chinese language cinema, the award-winning films are a mix of documentaries and fiction and include the UK Premieres of the Hong Kong box office hit Men on the Dragon, with director and cast Q&A (tbc), and the documentary A Way Out, and the London Premiere of the doc Turtle Rock. The entertaining and challenging films cover a wide range of subjects, from middle-aged men fighting back against their troubles through dragon boat racing, to the lives of villagers in a remote mountain village in China and the moving stories of three Chinese teenagers growing up in different economic and social environments.

CVF’s 2019 Chinese New programme is part of the wider Chinese Art Now festival, the first arts festival in the UK dedicated to British-Chinese performance and culture, which runs from 19th January to 2nd February 2019 – click here for more information.
