anghai International Film and TV Festival and the audiovisual communication research ce
nter at Peking University, about 1,500 films were screened exclusively online in 2018, a drop from 2,400 in 2016.
The drop is partly a result of the rising budgets for online movies, which as the survey also shows, have gr
own a hundredfold, surging from several hundred thousand yuan in 2015 to tens of millions of yuan in 2018.
“We hope to see the quality of films continue to improve as more budget is alloca

Ma Zhongjun, founder of Shanghai-based Ciwen Media and a Chinese pla
ywright, stated at the summit that some key elements of quality online works are inn

Unfortunately, it has also brought a deteriorating environment. Seeing heavy smog, for ex

Since 2012, the new leadership under President Xi Jinping has put forward a series of ecol
ogical ideas. On Sunday, Xi said at the opening ceremony of the exhibition that “green mountains and cle
ar waters are indeed mountains of gold and silver, and environmental improvement means great productivity”.
This idea, dubbed the theory of two mountains, enjoys immense popular support in China.
Xi, who is also general secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party o
f China, urged officials at all levels never to sacrifice the environment for economic growth.
