PhD Scholarship on Chinese Film & Soft Power at Nottingham’s Ningbo Campus, China
|This project aims to examine the role of film in the formation, projection and reception of Chinese soft power, which, according to Nye (2004), means a nation’s ability to achieve goals through attraction, but not coercion or payment. It will investigate films screened at the Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF), which created the “BRI Film Night” in 2018 for cultural and educational exchange that featured 26 films from 26 countries. It will also investigate films selected in the following years by the SIFF that were toured in specific BRI countries, with the mandate of “spreading Chinese culture and telling Chinese stories.” Finally, it will investigate the development of the BRI film festival alliance, which currently includes 38 institutions in 33 countries, and is projected to grow.|
