BOUTIQUE FESTIVAL FOR THE PEOPLE

电影回归市集

Rooted in the markets scene, film screening seems to naturally inherit the gene from busking. Since the creation of film, it has been considered as a revolutionary form of street performance which also becomes part of the primeval charm of film later. Its close link to physical comedy and to populace is a great tradition of film, this art form. Chaplin and Keaton especially were the representatives of numerous film masters of that time.

 

The 2nd Pingyao International Film Festival hopes to inspire people to rethink the origins of film in the contemporary context. By taking the film screening back to the market at an ancient town, to its ‘birth place”, we wish to create a natural, subjective and inclusive environment for communications, where filmmakers can also enjoy their genuine connections with films.
