Next Saturday, the 21st edition of the Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF) will begin! SIFF is a non-specialized competitive international film festival recognized by the International Federation of Film Producers Associations. Twenty editions have been held so far and, in the process, is supported by the rapid development of China’s film industry and the transformation of Shanghai into an international cultural metropolis. Until June 25th, films from all over the world (including Sweden, France, Japan, Romania and Mexico) will be shown throughout cinemas in Shanghai.
