Speakers update: April Ye, the CEO of Film Finances China and the founder of April Harvest Productions will also be joining the panel on April 17.
AmCham China's Media & Entertainment Forum is pleased to invite you to attend an exclusive China Film Finance panel taking place during the Beijing International Film Festival. Forum Co-Chair Mathew Alderson is honored to host three industry experts Ellen Eliasoph, President and CEO, Village Roadshow Entertainment Group Asia, Bennett Pozil, EVP Head of Corporate Banking, East West Bank and April Ye, CEO of Film Finances Inc.
China’s film business continues to grow but developments late last year point to a period of correction and rationalization. Box office has slowed in face of concerns about ticket pricing and accounting. Several high profile projects have fallen over or achieved disappointing results. Hollywood’s financing models are stretching to fit this new environment. Concerns about box office reporting abound. Completion bonds and insurances are just emerging. Collection account management also faces new challenges.
As filmmakers and studio executives from around the globe converge for the Beijing International Film Festival, come hear from two of the industry's leading experts. Issues to be covered include:
• Financial structuring of Sino-US motion pictures,
• The roles of banks and lenders in the financing process,
• Tips for foreign producers or studios raising money from Chinese investors,
• Tips for successful co-productions,
• Collection account management in China,
• Completion guarantors and production insurers in China.
Please note that this is an No Media event.
