Speech by H.E. Deng Ying on the opening of "Chinese Film Festival"
Ms. Pernille Schütz, Head of Cinematheque,
Mr. Flemming Besenbacher, Chairman of Carlsberg Foundation,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Good evening! I am very glad to attend the opening ceremony of the "Chinese Film Festival". First, on behalf of Chinese Embassy in Denmark, I'd like to extend my warmest welcome to you all, and to convey my appreciation to the Danish Film Institute and the Film Bureau of China for their great efforts making this event possible.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of China-Denmark comprehensive strategic partnership. This film festival is one of the important events celebrating the 10th anniversary. This year the festival will be held in Aarhus and Greenland besides Copenhagen.
It is the most influential bilateral film exchange in terms of length and scale since the establishment of China-Denmark diplomatic ties. Films serve as a window and a bridge to enhance understanding among people from different cultures.
