Shanghai is striving for building a global film and television production center, which indicates substantial talent demands in future film and television industry. Therefore, it will be an important task to train professionals for the industrialization of Chinese films.

As film industry advances, emerging technologies such as augmented reality, virtual reality, virtual shooting, and artificial intelligence have emerged one after another. While bringing visual enjoyment and sensory shock to the audience, they have also spawned subversive changes to the mode of filming. At the forum, the first topic for the guests fell on the cutting-edge film production technology and the future of China's film industry in the post-epidemic era.
