Changchun of Northeast China's Jilin province is a city whose development is closely linked to movies, as modern China's first film studio is located here.

Founded on October 1, 1945, Changchun Film Studio (CFS) has produced over 900 feature films, dubbed 1,000 films from other countries.

The Film studio is the birthplace of China's first feature film, first cartoon, first documentary, as well as a series of classics familiar to generations of Chinese audiences. It's dubbed as "the cradle of modern China's film industry."

Many far-reaching movies were born here. War epic "Heroic Sons and Daughters" were produced here in 1964, featuring a story during the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea.
