Professor Xie Fei from Beijing Film Academy was known for his distinctive directing style as one of the most influential "fourth generation" directors in China. He gave an overview of the drastic trajectory of the motion picture industry in China over the last 30 over years including how the six different generations of directors have emerged.

She shared her view of the motion picture industry landscape in China, Taiwan and Hong Kong. The audience particularly enjoyed the movie trailers interspersed in her presentation.

The event ended with a question-and-answer session chaired by Mr Kenneth Tan, Chair of the Singapore Film Society.
