Activities like a film students' exhibition of their works, technical workshops, film funding seminars, and television industry panel discussions will be held over Oct 19-20, and a forum on US-China film industry cooperation will be organized on Oct 30.

Coproduced films will be screened on Oct 30 and 31.
