Discovery China Chinese Film Contest
Adjust font size:

Discovery Channel is seeking young Chinese for its First-time Filmmakers project.   

The new theme is "Portraits of China" -- ordinary but extraordinary people who have made major contributions to modern China. 

Senior citizens learning English in Beijing to help Olympics tourists and a young man building "monster" cars are among the winning documentaries of the Discovery Channel's First-time Filmmakers project in China.   

It was one of the six top documentaries chosen and funded by Discovery in the project - and aired as a series.  

This year's proposals are due November 20.   

The First-time Filmmakers program was initiated by the Discovery Channel in China in 2002. Winners receive financing and are premiered as a series, "China 21" on Discovery Channel in the Asia Pacific region and 26 leading cable TV stations in China, reaching over 114 million households.
