As China’s version of the Academy Awards, the Golden Rooster and Hundred Flowers Film Festival will be sponsored by both the China Federation of Literary and Art Circles and the China Film Association.

The festival aims to honor excellent films and individuals for their devotion and creativity in the film sector, and to further promoting China’s film industry.

The Golden Rooster awards are also called “expert awards”, as the film nominees are selected by reputed artists and professional film reviewers. The Hundred Flower awards differ, as they are chosen by the public.

As the host city, Hohhot hopes to present its hospitality and unique culture to filmmakers from China and aboard. It is a golden opportunity for Hohhot, as well as the whole region, to boost its local arts industries.

The concert was a chance for Hohhot to embrace the creation of films, music and the literary arts.
