What makes a film festival?

 It is the people and the connections among them that make PYIFF compelling. 

The festival connects everyone from established professionals, to new joiners fresh out of school, and of course, the audience. 

They exchange ideas through film and also communicate face-to-face, seeking understanding and inspiring each other.

  And the communication goes both ways. World masters introduce vision, experience and professional insight; ordinary folks like you and me bring vitality and passion for film, as well as our gaze and applause.

We look forward to the creation of more possibilities between the one and everyone. 

According to Chinese philosophy, one begets two, two begets three, and three begets all things. 

Just as one filmmaker’s spirit can touch millions, a single film festival can have an impact on as many. 

People from different corners of the world gather in Pingyao and they talk film.
