Cinema, which has a unique charm that carries it beyond borders, was one of the most highlighted themes during the annual conference of the Taihu World Cultural Forum, which held its first event on film on 19th October.

In China, this year's box office haul had surpassed 50 billion yuan ($7.21 billion) by Oct 4, which was 47 days earlier than that figure was reached last year, according to the China Film Administration, the sector's top regulator.

With 58,530 screens in 10,417 cinemas, the most on Earth, China has inked film coproduction agreements with 21 countries, said Cao Yin, director of the program center at the China Movie Channel.

Zhou Shuchun, publisher and editor-in-chief of China Daily, said he hopes exchanges and cooperation in film circles will be further strengthened and contribute to the building of a community of a shared future for mankind.

China has become the world's second-largest movie market. Many genres of films are welcomed in China, and Chinese films have also seen an expansion in going abroad, he said.

Citing blockbusters such as Jackie Chan's Police Story series and Aamir Khan's Dangal, Zhou said a quality film always demonstrates a nation's unique charm from a special perspective.

"The more you exchange culture with the rest of the world, the more you will understand how insightful the proposition 'the more national, the more international' is," Zhou said. "What makes an excellent movie unforgettable is the convincing characters it depicts."
