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
ted to such projects,” says Lu Di, director of the research center at Peking University.
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
ovation, either in characters or plots, and a smooth and rigorous film production process ranging from the choic
ns in February for the clinical application of new biomedical technologies, stipulating that clini
cal research that involves human trials, including gene editing, stem cells, organ transplants be
tween species and assisted reproductive technologies, must secure the approval of the commission in advance.
Under the draft, which is yet to be adopted, violators may face punishments including fines, revocation of business permits or criminal charges.
The commission this year will complete its revision of an existing r
egulation on ethical inspection of human-related biomedical research that was adopted in 2016.
Authorities are also considering establishing a national ethics co
mmittee that supervises life science technologies and researchers to ensure compliance wi
th ethical standards, Huang Jiefu, former vice-minister of health, told China Daily in an earlier interview.
