Chinese film festival to run online in Myanmar

September 30, 2020

The Chinese film festival will be held virtually in Myanmar on Oct. 1, according to a release from the Chinese Embassy on Tuesday.

This year's film festival will mark the 71st anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China, the 70th anniversary of the China-Myanmar diplomatic ties and the China-Myanmar Year of Culture and Tourism, the embassy's release said.

The release said the films to be screened at the festival could bring confidence and fun to the two peoples in their fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

More than 10 Chinese films, including Fighting Men of China, Jade Dynasty, and Our Forty Years, will be at the show online with Myanmar-language dubbing and subtitles.
