Hollywood set to familiarize China

MUMBAI: A groundbreaking and historic opportunity is in the anvil for members of the Hollywood community when they will be granted access to China‘s state run film, television and radio industry.
Black Card Circle‘s "Executive Leadership Exchange" in Shanghai is an intensive program in partnership with the China Executive Leadership Academy Pudong (CELAP) and is coordinating a 5-day itinerary focused on the Chinese film and entertainment industry, that is to take place between 25 and 29 June in Shanghai.

Relationships built at this exclusive event may open doors to many present and future opportunities. Attendees will gain valuable insight into Chinese film industry and culture, develop crucial relationships with Chinese government officials and top Chinese companies, and learn how to produce films and media with the support of the Chinese government.
Government officials and executives from China who are scheduled to attend include Ruihang Li (Deputy Secretary-General of Shanghai Government & Former President of Shanghai Television Station), Tong Tao (Director of Department of Investment Promotion, Shanghai Foreign Investment Promotion Centre), Tong Gang (President of the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television), and Zhonglun Ren (President of Shanghai Film Group). Black Card founder Lotay Yang recently announced that Hollywood legends Andre Morgan (Enter the Dragon and Game of Death, both starring Bruce Lee) and Janet Yang (Joy Luck Club, Empire of the Sun) are now associated with this historic event bridging the United States and China.
"We not only provide access to vital relationships, but provide the knowledge on how to most effectively utilize those relationships so you know how to work within the system rather than against it, and possess the knowledge on what China‘s requirements are in terms of projects and production partners," said active member of the prestigious Academy of Television Arts & Sciences marketing director for the BCC ELE program Jeffery Gund.

This event is the result of over two years and around a dozen trips to China by Black Card Circle founder Lotay Yang, whose paternal grandfather was Air Force General for President Chiang Kai-Shek, and maternal grandfather was Chief of Police of Taipei.
