ANOTHER translates as "other" in Chinese, another story, another life, and another attitude. The film festival is hosted by EMI Pictures, and jointly sponsors Shenniu Lighting, Smog, and You Basket.
We hope to explore young film creators from a commercial perspective, aiming to build a resource sharing platform for more genre film directors. Recommend outstanding talents and works for film and television institutions, discover and deliver fresh blood to the industrial chain, and bring more diverse film choices and audio-visual experiences to the audience, so as to promote the industrialized development of film and television education. The film festival will hold "screening units" and "competition units" on a fixed basis every quarter. In the future, new forms of activities such as "Youth Film Training Camp" will be added according to the actual situation.
ANOTHER has held offline screening activities in Beijing/Chongqing/Changsha. While providing generous bonuses and support treatment, we will also help you to promote your short film works overseas. As a platform for public display, your short film works will have the opportunity to be favored by the production company
