The 2017 First China International Forum on Film Engineering Technology Industry was held in Beijing on Jan 15 to discuss the future of movie industry and cutting-edge technologies.

Ronald Burdett, a veteran in postproduction industry, said the rapid development of internet makes it possible for filmmakers to handle the postproduction wherever in the world.

He said most of the Hollywood films nowadays finish the postproductions in other countries, which in some sense means Hollywood could be "anywhere in the world".

He believes in the future a privileged networking may be established to speed up Chinese filmmakers' communication and teaming up with the American counterparts.

Burdett is behind seven Oscar-winning films and won the lifetime achievement award of The Hollywood Post Alliance Awards.

Some Chinese veterans also believe the globalization will improve the local technology and bring more moviegoers to theaters in small cities.

Liu Chun, a sponsor of the forum and senior engineer of August First Film Studio, said that China now has around 41,000 screens, the largest in the world.

"But the statistics show that the screens and theaters in the fourth- and fifth-tier cities have yet to reach local demands, which means such cities will have more potential to develop than big cities," he said.
