David White, an Australian sound designer who serves as a jury member for the Tiantan Awards, said he has visited the Chinese capital multiple times since the late 1980s, and has paid attention to the rapid recovery of China's film industry after the COVID-19 pandemic.

"I think the Chinese film industry is the most interesting in the world at the moment and has the most potential for growth in the next five-year period," he said, adding that he has been looking forward to cooperating with more Chinese filmmakers since China and Australia signed a film coproduction agreement several years ago.
