Beijing International Film Festival is one of the biggest event, that unites the impressive representatives of film industry from around the world. Within the scope of this exhibition, there is presented the information stand of the program “Film in Georgia”, where any interested person will be able to obtain exhaustive information about the so-called “cashrebate” mechanism. In addition, the program representatives will hold individual meetings with Indian filmmakers to stimulate promotion of Georgian filmmaking potential.

It is significant, that Georgia is widely represented at the measure, since two Georgian films- “Scary Mother” by Ana Urushadze and “Dede” by Mariam Khachvani are in main competition of the Festival. Whereas in the section “Panorama”, there will be shown the new film “Chair” by Eldar Shengelaia.
