The Festival of Chinese Cinema in France has opened in Paris, bringing ten latest Chinese films to French audiences.

The festival in its fifth edition was opened with a screening of Somewhere Only We Know directed by Xu Jinglei.

Attending the opening event, Chinese ambassador to France Zhai Jun said that China and France can learn more about each other by working together on film projects.

"In recent years, Chinese films have had a bigger market in France, especially last year. As part of the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between China and France, both countries co-produced Wolf Totem. I believe there will be greater potential in such communication and cooperation."

Films to be screened during the festival include The Ferry, The Great Hypnotist and Brotherhood of Blades.

The festival will be held in seven French cities including Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Strasbourg and Cannes from May 11 to June 30. The festival was founded in 2011 with an aim of bringing Chinese cinema to French audiences and creating opportunities between the two countries to work together on film projects.
