Golden Chopsticks Film Gala, 9 Dec 2pm-5pm

Students who take the course “Chinese Silent Cinema, 1922-1935” form groups and make their own 20-minute films modelled on the thematics and aesthetics of silent-era Chinese films.

As a conclusion to this class, all student films are shown at a mock Oscar event known as the “Golden Chopsticks Film Gala.” Judges made up of faculty members and experts determine Golden Chopsticks winners in ten categories: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Cinematography, Best Actress in a Lead Role, Best Actor in a Lead Role, Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Best Music, Best Set Design, and Best Poster.
