The Golden Koala Chinese Film Festival, which is currently the biggest and most influential overseas Chinese film event, is organized by Chinese Film Incorporated (CFFI). Joining hands with the City of Sydney, participants are invited from all corners of Chinese speaking regions including China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and Macau, to exhibit and compete with their newest and most outstanding film productions.
CFFI is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious organization, who’s only aim is to promote and provide a better understanding of Chinese film culture. The interactions between western and eastern cultures can help accomplish a mutual understanding and create a lasting friendship throughout the course of this event.
The Golden Koala Award will be the first of its kind in Australia. All awards will be judged on an international scale by a panel of experts in the industry. The purpose of this will be underlined by three major points:
1. Promote Chinese films on a worldwide stage
2. Unearth and recognize outstanding Chinese films on an international scale
3. Acknowledge the hard work and the dedication of the people behind the scenes in the Chinese film industry
The entire staff of this event will stand closely by the motto:
Justness, fairness, openness
CFFI hopes to achieve the first of many successful and memorable events for Chinese filmmakers and producers.
