Guangzhou International Documentary Film Festival

Documentary

Guangzhou International Documentary Film Festival, China (GZ DOC) is now the only national documentary industrial event hosted by State Administration of Radio, Film and TV and Guangdong Provincial Government. GZ DOC endeavours to “bring China to the world and have the world know China” and has been developing itself towards an international, professional and market-oriented festival.

ATTENDEE TIPS

“After making requested cuts to the film, I was told on arrival that the film had then been withdrawn from public screening by the authorities. It still screened as part of the competition and I still took part in several industry sessions at the festival as an invited filmmaker guest. The organisers of the festival were very apologetic about the withdrawal of the film by the authorities.”

“The Chinese producers’ knowledge about style and content and versioning is not well developed. The independent sector is almost non-existent and nearly all finance has to filter down from Government sources.“

“One of our responses to the difficulty of getting cash out of Chinese broadcasters is to look at the projects they are developing to see what can be taken into the marketplace as either co productions or with us acting as an agent.”
