BEIJING, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- Forty-two films will be screened this year at an annual forum celebrating young directors who make Chinese-language films, the event's main organizer said Tuesday.
The China Film Association said the 13th Chinese Young Generation Film Forum would be held between Sept. 12 and 16 in the central Chinese city of Wuhan. The municipal government sponsored the event.
The association's vice president Zhang Hong said the event aimed to foster a new generation of Chinese-language film makers.
The 42 films were selected from hundreds of candidates submitted since the forum called for entries in May. Some of them were produced overseas. The films cover a wide range of genres, including drama, action, thriller, sci-fi, romance and animation.
The organizers said they would take some of the films to screenings overseas to give young directors more international exposure.
