The 11th Edition of the Beijing International Film Festival takes on, its head held high, the challenge of organising an international film festival during a pandemic. For this edition, the events involving many cinemas, theatres and multisala cinemas all around the capital are being carried out while furnishing guidelines, even to other festivals as well, that manage to bring together both glamour and safety. Besides the films competing in the various sections of the festival - from the most traditional to the most innovative, with an eye on new technology in the realm of both creating and viewing films - there is also an exhibition dedicated to Godzilla and King Kong. The exhibition-event introduces fans to the world of the cinema’s most famous monsters but with irony and tenderness on this occasion. Among the celebrities involved in this edition, the famed Chinese actress Gong Li, whose international career developed right along with the growth of Chinese cinema on the world stage. She will be filling the prestigious role of President of the Jury of the Tiantan Award, an award with 10 categories, including Best Film, Best Director, as well as Best Actor and Best Actress.
