London Chinese Independent Film Festival

The London Chinese Independent Film Festival is a non-profit initiative dedicated to promoting public awareness of Chinese independent cinema, in association with the London Consortium, Birkbeck College, University of London, and the London Film School.

The Festival will take place at The Screen @ RADA and Birkbeck Cinema from 15 to 29 September 2012 with nine feature length films and documentaries.

The programmers have assembled a blend of both renowned classics and fresh new works from emerging talent.

Throughout the festival there will be stimulated by discussions and talks given by leading academics and film critics, covering the Chinese Independent Cinema Movement and social issues in China today.

The line-up includes Bumming in Beijing, the 1990 film credited with inspiring the launch of the New Documentary Cinema movement in China.

Pickpocket is the astonishing debut film from Jia Zhangke from 1998 and his 2010 documentary Dong about the painter Liu Xiaodong is on the bill.

Ai Xiaoming's famous activist documentary Why The Flower Is So Red features world famous Chinese artist Ai Weiwei.
