China is a challenging place to be an indie filmmaker, given the country’s history of censorship and suppression of creative expression.
But FIRST International Film Festival is an opportunity for this community to come together.
Many young filmmakers in China view FIRST as the Chinese version of Sundance. It’s a place where up-and-coming indie filmmakers can work with other professionals and potentially get funding for their cinematic dreams.
RADII wants to find out if it truly lives up to the hype. Here’s one story of a young filmmaker in China.
RADII (rā'dē-ī’) is an independent platform of artists, writers, and creators who share vibrant stories from the rarely explored sides of modern Chinese culture.
Founded in 2017, RADII creates multimedia content, events, and interactive workshops that shine a light on the topics that connect the world’s young global thinkers together.
