Beijing's Huairou district launched a government service station on Thursday to process the administrative procedures both at the municipal and district levels regarding film and television production.

Attached to Huairou International Film and Television Production Service Center, the station provides "one-stop" services at seven windows for altogether 61 items.

The items cover the whole flow of production, from, for example, registering film companies, setting up film projects and putting them on record, to getting a license for production and distribution of TV series.

Users can also handle some of the items online via WeChat mini-program of the administrative service bureau of the district.

The government service station aims to draw more Chinese and foreign projects to film at Huairou, said Wei Xiaoyu, deputy director of Beijing Radio & Television Station and deputy secretary-general of the organizing committee of the 12th Beijing International Film Festival, that concluded on Sunday.

She was speaking at a launch ceremony as part of the film festival events.

Apart from the streamlined administrative services, the other service packages released at the same time have provided preferential policies and convenience in filming, funding, film-related events opportunities, technological support, and in daily life, healthcare and children education.

During the event, the district's cultural industry development promotion center also signed a strategic cooperation framework agreement with the Beijing Television Artists Association and the Beijing Film Association for potential cooperation in areas like international filming collaboration, content creation, IP protection, as well as technological integration into the film industry.

The ceremony was followed by a forum on topics including digitalization of the film industry, potential of Chinese sci-fi movies, and empowerment of science and technology to filmmaking.

Hu Yaozhi, deputy dean of the Beijing Film Academy, called for the government, scholars, insiders of film industry and the technology sector to join hands and share resources, especially with film-majored college students, to better nurture the next generation of Chinese filmmakers.
