Winners of the ATF Chinese Pitch 2020 were announced after a series of exciting pitches held over Zoom. Although this year was a little different – in that the pitches took place virtually – spirits were not dampened, with finalists vying to pitch their way to victory.
This year saw nine finalists competing under three categories – Online Drama Series, Theatrical/ Online Movies and those that qualified under the Chinese Scriptwriting Course. They delivered their pitches to a panel of household names such as Guo Jingyu, Executive Chairman and Group CEO of G.H.Y. Culture & Media, Chen Xiao, Senior Vice President at iQIYI, Xu Xiaodan, Professor at the Beijing Film Academy and Xiao Ji Xiang Tian, Scriptwriter at G.H.Y. Culture & Media.
Specially curated for all Chinese scriptwriters, it is the third year that ATF is hosting the ATF Chinese Pitch alongside global partner G.H.Y Culture & Media, which provides a platform for talents from Southeast Asia to expand into Mandarin-speaking territories and reach out to a more diversified audience. The winners, judged by various rubrics, each received a cash prize of S$3,500.
Winners of the online drama series award, Yeoh Chooi Keen and Liew Mei Ying, impressed the judges with
《七天》. This year marks the third year that they have been in the running for the award, and they have entered with more confidence.
In light of continued health and safety concerns, the Jay Chou Carnival World Tour – Kuala Lumpur that had been scheduled for 16 January 2021 will be rescheduled to Saturday 19 February 2022 at Bukit Jalil National Stadium.
