A brief history of Chinese film

Links and Sources

This is a website about the films of mainland China. It is also very much a work in progress. Above are links to the site's four main sections: Films, Directors, Bibliography, and a forthcoming essay on the history of Chinese film. There's a long way to go, but it should still be a useful source of information for anyone interested in Chinese film; I hope you find something here to interest you.
