After the 6th Golden Rooster and Hundred Flowers Film Festival 21 years ago, it is the second time that the film festival was held in Foshan. Foshan became the first city in China to hold the film festival twice. In recent years, as the Chinese film industry enters the golden period of prosperity and development, Foshan has accelerated the construction of a number of film and television industry bases and theme parks, and has built the Southern China Film and Television Center. As a result, Foshan is becoming a “dream city” for more and more filmmakers home and abroad to innovate and start businesses.
Many actors who attended the closing ceremony had an indissoluble bond with Foshan. The famous kung fu superstar Jackie Chan made a special trip to Foshan to participate in the awarding ceremony - the background of his early kung fu movies were based on Foshan. Jackie Chan said that Foshan has deep roots with Kung Fu movies. “Foshan gave birth to Kung Fu masters such as Wong Fei-hung and Ip Man and provided many story themes for kung fu movies.”
