In order to bring an awareness of multi-cultural media dynamism to a wider spectrum in both the West and the East and to boost international collaboration in TV and film, The Asian-American Television & Film Alliance also hosted, besides the Golden Oak Award Ceremony, in association with the 2017 New York Television Festival, a "China Day" tandem of panel discussions at the Helen Mills Theater and China Institute on October 26th.

"In all the world, whether aesthetically or economically, there are no television or film markets or product-generators more significant than those of Asia and the U.S. Our goal is to promote cross-cultural communication and cooperation between these two mass-media behemoths," said Mr. Perzigian, co-chairman of the Asian-American Television & Film Alliance.

Asian-American High-End Festival in the Global Pattern and Setting

China is currently the most active production and broadcasting nation in the world and represents the most robust film and television market anywhere. Given today's rapidly widening avenues of opportunity, the Chinese television industry recognizes a need to attain and maintain higher artistic and industrial standards, scientific regulatory and management systems, and ever-improving talents.

The Asian-American Television & Film Festival is an inaugural celebratory event that will expedite eastern and western cultural communication by providing the Asian-American television and film industry with a gamut of professional services, including financing for international production, co-shooting and marketing, and a general spirit of cooperation and inter-communication. The aim will be to build a high-end, viable, professional and international cultural exchange platform.
