13th Chinese Spring Film Festival [event]

CNY Spring Film Fest

The 13th Spring Film Festival is here! One of the most celebrated festivals in the Chinese-Filipino community, this year’s lineup features six acclaimed titles, including 30th Tokyo International Film Festival Best Film Winner “I Belonged To you”.

Presented by the Ateneo Ricardo Leong Center for Chinese Studies, Ateneo Celadon, and Shangri-La Plaza, these films will be shown free of charge from January 30 to February 5 at the new Red Carpet cinema at Shangri-La Plaza.

I Belonged To You

Kicking things off on January 30, I Belonged To You follows the intersecting lives of different people as they find love in the big city. Centering on a radio host and his young intern, the film features a memorable plotline and gorgeous shots of urban life.

Lost in White

Lost in White is a gripping crime thriller sure to keep viewers on the edge of their seats. When a dead body is pulled out of an icy river, detectives Zhou Peng and Wang Hao must get to the bottom of the mystery. Little do they know that they’re about to descend into a spiral of intrigue and violence.

Detective Chinatown

In Detective Chinatown, a police college reject teams up with a distant relative to solve a murder case. Brimming with absurdity and humor, the movie takes viewers through a wild tour of Bangkok, filled with zany characters and cheeky one-liners.

The Third Way of Love

The Third Way of Love tells the tale of two star-crossed lovers: sharp and mysterious heir Lin Qi Zheng and ambitious, intelligent lawyer Zhou Yu. Played by two powerhouse movie stars—heartthrob Song Seung-Heon and the beloved Liu Yifei (who will be playing in the title role of Disney’s upcoming Mulan), this lighthearted romance was one of 2015’s most popular Chinese films.

A Tale of Three Cities

Ending the festival with a bang is A Tale of Three Cities, a romantic period piece about the lives of Charles and Lee-Lee Chan, parents of Jackie Chan. After meeting in China during the war, falling in love, then getting separated by the turmoil, they must find their way back together again.
