A senior radio and television official urged Chinese documentary film producers and trade bodies to further expand exchanges and cooperation with their foreign counterparts to promote cultural exchange.

"We encourage and support more Chinese documentary films and filmmakers to participate more in international film festivals and related events held abroad and seek further expansion of exchange and cooperation," according to Fan Weiping, deputy director of the National Radio and Television Administration, on Tuesday.

"Meanwhile Chinese filmmakers and television producers are urged to join hands with their overseas counterparts to shoot more good movies that show China's development in the past decades and tell the Chinese stories abroad," he said.

Fan made his remarks at the keynote speech at the opening ceremony of the 2018 Guangzhou International Documentary Film Festival, China taking place in this Guangdong provincial capital from Tuesday to Thursday.
