In our second year, our film festival consists of 4 programmes:
[+] CHINA RETROSPECTIVE: We always look back. It is so human
The China Retrospective programme features award-nominated or -winning films that reveal the zeitgeist and enormous changes in China and the Chinese society since the early 20th century; and that capture how ideas and beliefs have formed and evolved over time.
[+] LILI VS. LEVIATHAN: What we see in women and what we know about them are yet to be settled
The Lili vs. Leviathan programme serves to advance the appreciation of female filmmakers’ and actresses’ endeavours, as well as to recognize the identity and power of female protagonists in films.
[+] YIN AND YANG: Between Yin and Yang, there exists a spectrum
The Yin and Yang programme is dedicated to films that reflect on social issues related to gender inequality, gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation, in China, thereby advocating equality and solidarity.
[+] FOUNTAINHEAD: Emerging originators
The Fountainhead programme celebrates and promotes emerging talents and their works with creative originality.
No prior knowledge required, we want to bring forth the most unfiltered version of China in its modern and historical time. One film at a time, let’s go see China together.
Mulan International Film Festival is a not-for-profit organization, founded by a small group of recent graduates from U of T, who are deeply passionate about Chinese films and culture. Mulan is 100% run and managed by volunteers. Our most sincere appreciations to all of our volunteers.
