During the first screening week, ten excellent Chinese films, including Lethal Hostage, The Grandmaster, American Dreams in China and Taichi 2, will be showcased for British audience.

"The screening week is launched under the background of 10th anniversary of Sino-British comprehensive strategic partnership and the fruitful results between the two film communities ... I believe that audience would get a glimpse of Chinese history and culture, Chinese livelihood and sentiment, profound changes brought to China after opening up, and colorful natural scenery in China," said Luan Guozhi, deputy director-general of the Film Bureau of China's State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television.
