When it comes to creating feature-length, documentary, and short films that are informative and use unique concepts — including cell phone filmmaking — the New York-based film company Owltainment has an excellent international reputation. Having recently been invited to show their film Enduring Legacy – China Story at the Chinese Cultural Foundation’s Annual Award Ceremony in New York this past December, the company has its films showing in a cavalcade of 2017 film festivals in the coming months.
Owltainment was founded by Yuanyuan Chen and Mingda Dong, two New York University students who decided to use their creative talents to bridge the gap between the United States and Chinese film industries. With a versatile approach, helping to introduce American film scholars to China and hosting lectures and seminars for Chinese students and filmmakers, the company has been taking a head-on approach to film education. As film festival organizers themselves, they also continually host, support, and implement activities — like the Honor Festival — for festivals both in the U.S. and China.
