Senior Official Visits New National Digital Studio

A senior Party official has called for constantly strengthening the entire capacity and competitiveness of China's film and television industry, so as to push the country's film and TV products to the world.

Great efforts must be made to innovate the sector, regarding both content and the form of film and TV works, the structure and mechanism of the industry, and the means of spreading film and TV works, said Li Changchun, member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Political Bureau.

Li made the remarks on Friday during a visit to the newly-built national digital studio. He was accompanied by Politburo members Liu Yunshan and Liu Yandong during his stay at the National Digital Studio of the China Film Group Company.

During his visit, Li visited a 5,000-square-meter sound stage and watched presentations on the making of digital films.

In talks with some staff he spoke highly of the modern studio, calling its completion a result of the country's cultural restructuring and an important symbol for the development of the cultural sector.

"It proves the Party Central Committee's decision on the cultural restructuring is completely correct," he stressed.

Li urged Chinese film and TV makers to produce more film and TV works for both domestic and international markets, noting homemade products should take a larger share of the domestic market and be more competitive on the international market.

He called for educating more talented professionals for China's film and TV industry. People of all circles should show their care and support to the development of the sector, he said.

According to company sources, it took 2.5 years to build the digital studio. It is composed of different workshops for making films and TV programs, recording, digital processing, film printing and making flash and cartoon films.
