Xiaolian Qiu from the University of Sheffield has been selected to join UK-China Film Collab as a member via the organisation’s Future Talent Programme 2021-2022.

Here is Xiaolian’s introduction to herself and her project for this year:

I’m Xiaolian Qiu, a film lover who appreciates good movies and I hope to do my humble best to let more people know the films that deserved. I’m currently finishing my MSc in Creative and Cultural Industries Management at the University of Sheffield.

My current project is to curate a film exhibition for British children films in China. It aims to introduce about 10-15 iconic children films, from classic to contemporary, to Chinese audiences. It, although focuses on the films about, or made for children, the targeted audiences could potentially be larger since I believe that a good children film is for anyone of any age.”
