Shanghai International Film Festival

The Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF), founded in 1993, is China’s only A-category international film festival accredited by the FIAPF. In the circumstance of globalization, China’s film industry grows rapidly. SIFF devotes itself to building up an international platform with four main programs including Competition, SIFF Mart, SIFFORUM, and International Film Panorama, in an effort to promote the industry development and enhance cooperation with the rest of the world.

The competition section includes Golden Goblet Award and Asian New Talent Award. Film veterans are invited to serve on the jury panel. The Golden Goblet Award, as the main competition section, demonstrates SIFF’s authority and influence. The jury of the Golden Goblet Award consists of seven film celebrities from around the world.
