The UK-China Film Collab is a unique and one of its kind non-profit, non-governmental organisation. Our mission is to inspire and encourage film related collaboration and constructive debate between the UK and Greater China, through communication improvement, original project design, R&D, talent development and advocacy.
The first edition of Future Talent Programme was launched in 2020. Its objective is to provide a platform for students to gain some practical experience during their studies, as well as to testify their original ideas. The organisation will support their initiatives via our opportunities, network and resources. This programme is different from a standard internship. We are looking for individuals who have ideas and who are brave to put them into experiment. Any initiative or expertise is welcome, as long as they follow the organisation’s mission.
