Impact

Shortly after my arrival in Manchester in 2008, I met likeminded individuals and we then proceeded to form a research network called the Chinese Film Forum UK, in collaboration with colleagues from Manchester Metropolitan University, the University of Salford, the Confucius Institute at the University of Manchester, the Centre for Contemporary Chinese Art (previously, Chinese Arts Centre) and HOME (previously, Cornerhouse). The Forum has largely succeeded in its aims to broaden the research into and widen the audience for Chinese cinemas in Manchester, the Northwest, and the UK as a whole. Between 2012 and 2014, it was a recipient of an AHRC Research Network grant.

Today the Chinese Film Forum UK continues its work, with an annual Chinese New Year film screening, as well as organising and delivering curated film seasons, introduced screenings and Q&As, and talks and academic symposia. An overview of its past programme can be viewed on the HOME website.
