Bridging China and Indonesia through Films
Nanyang Bridge Media also participated in the 11th BJIFF in collaboration with the Indonesian Embassy in Beijing. We brought the 2 Indonesian films: “A Man Called Ahok” and “Susi Susanti” for the market screening and placed an Indonesian film booth at their exhibition platform to showcase 3 other Indonesian films. As one of the few Indonesian companies promoting economic and cultural exchanges across ASEAN, our CEO, Gandhi Priambodo, attended the event to represent Indonesia and embodied our ultimate vision as a company, bridging China and Southeast Asia.

If you think the 11th BJIFF was an extraordinary event, this year’s festival is expected to dive deeper into the film industry and create a more spectacular experience.
1. The Virtual Experience of a Global Film Exhibition
At the 12th BJIFF, you can fully display your company and projects virtually at the online exhibition, where all interactions can be done through the dedicated cloud platform. On the platform, participators can view the information of all registered booth personnel and send an email for business inquiries within a click. There is also a Business Chatting System embedded for an optimum experience of text/video conferences with exhibitors, project owners, and customers.
With this digital ecosystem, the 12th BJIFF is expected to see companies from all over the world come together and build a strategic connection with domestic and international filmmakers – ultimately, introducing more quality foreign content to China and outstanding Chinese films to the world.

2. An Exclusive Film Screening Awaits!
A special session of the BJIFF is the market screening where market-registered guests, buyers and industry insiders gather to have small internal viewing of carefully curated films from around the world. This year, the organizing committee has set the standards of high-quality and excellence in selecting the international films that will be screened exclusively at this special session, in hopes of elevating the quality of the international film market. Film professionals and industry insiders are to reserve their space at the market screening within two weeks before the exhibition period, after registering as guests/buyers of the event.
