The World Film Industry Association was inaugurated against the background that the COVID-19 pandemic had devastated the global film industry, and caused a significant decline in both the number of films released and the number of movie-going audiences, with the aim of exploring a way out for the global film industry to get rid of difficulties and recover comprehensively.
To this end, Hai-ge Wang, President of the WFIA, said that World Film Industry Association was inaugurated to serve film workers around the world, to actively give full play to the resource advantages and functional roles of the association, to cultivate and strengthen new technologies, industries, forms and models for the integrated development of film and cultural industries, to promote the high-quality development of the World Film Industry Conference, and to be a good leader in industrial development. He also said that while the world has faced the COVID-19 pandemic in the past three years, global frictions have increased and global rifts have deepened. At a time when the world film industry is at a critical turning point, global cultural filed and government leaders need to work together to develop long-term policies and strategies to revitalize the hard-hit global film industry.
As the world’s first offline conference-based international film organisation this year, the establishment of the World Film Industry Association has attracted widespread attention with over 300 total registered participants.
