The 24th Shanghai TV Festival, to be held from June 11th to 15th, will offer a variety of programs, including an international TV showcase, the Magnolia Awards for international television productions, the Magnolia TV Forum, an international TV market and NAB Show Shanghai.
Chinese mainland scriptwriter Liu Heping, best known for “All Quiet in Peking” and “Yongzheng Dynasty,” has been appointed the jury president of the TV series category.
This year marks the 60th anniversary of Chinese TV drama, so the festival will invite veteran producers, directors, actors, and TV critics to a themed workshop and a grand gala. Industry professionals from all over the country will look back on the development and achievements of domestic TV dramas over the past six decades.
