2007’s Tribeca 798 Film Festival Beijing will take place on July 10th and 11th in Beijing, China. Tribeca Enterprises, the William Morris Agency and China Interactive Media Group have all come together to present this special two-day independent film event, which will have an opening reception, free outdoor screenings and a block party on opening night set to take place in the 798 district, a neighborhood said to resemble the
artsy feel of New York’s Tribeca neighborhood. John Patricof, COO of Tribeca Enterprises, explains that the convergence of independent Chinese cinema and the Tribeca Film Festival “helps further the Tribeca Film Festival’s mission to expand the audience for independent film and to provide artists with unique platforms to reach new audiences.” The festival is featuring Wong Kar-Wai’s 2046, Benson Lee’s Planet B-Boy and Stephen Chow’s Shaolin Soccer as well as 13 other features and shorts.
