Creative Campus to host Shanghai Film Week screenings

Two critically acclaimed Chinese language films will be screened at the Creative Campus, as part of the Liverpool-Shanghai 20th Sister Cities Anniversary Celebration.

Shanghai, in partnership with Liverpool Hope University, Liverpool City Council and the UK-China Film Collaboration Project funded by the AHRC, will present a unique film week specially curated by the Shanghai Art Film Federation - part of the Shanghai Film Distribution and Exhibition Association.

Audiences in Liverpool are invited to the screenings of four films that represent different aspects of life in contemporary Chinese society. 

Professor Stephen Davismoon, Associate Dean of the School of Creative and Performing Arts and Head of the Creative Campus, said: "I am delighted to host world-class films from the culturally celebrated city of Shanghai, in our fabulous Capstone Theatre. 

"We very much welcome our neighbours from across the Mersey Region, including members of the historic Chinese community in our city, to come together to experience this unique day of culture and celebration in Liverpool.”

The first two screenings will take place on Tuesday 15th October at The Capstone Theatre, Shaw Street, Liverpool, and are free of charge to the public.

Sky Ladder: The Art of Cai Guo-Qiang (2016) will be screened from 11am – 12.30pm, while Shakuhachi: One Sound One Life (2019) will air from 2.30pm – 4pm.

Following the second screening, Senior Lecturer in Media and Communication Dr Noel Brown will lead a question and answer session in The Capstone Theatre from 4pm.
