Established by Zhongze Culture Investment and Zhongze Asset Management in October 2015, the China-UK Film Fund aims to bring together industry knowledge, creative talent, technology and business opportunities from the UK and China.
The partners intend to grow the fund to £1.5bn ($2.2bn) by 2020 through further collaborations and are setting up at markets like TIFF to showcase current acquisitions, such as the newly formed partnerships with clients such as the UK's International Talent Management owned by Duncan Heath, as well as looking for material that is market-focused and is going to deliver either in China or the UK. Most projects will be made under the [China-UK co-production] treaty, but the fund are open to any projects that involve an exchange of talent and experience between the two sides and will prove a popular partner.
