“The Cooperation on film and TV industry not only plays an important part in China-Africa people-to-people exchanges, but also stands as a promising growth point of China-Africa practical cooperation.” said Chinese Ambassador to South Africa Tian Xuejun, “We meet each other’s demands, enjoy respective competitive edges and can offer opportunities to each other. China-Africa cooperation surely has great potential and broad prospects.”

Being the second largest film market in the world, China’s total sales of film tickets were about 29.6 billion Yuan (R65 billion) in 2014, which marks a 36% growth; the number of digital set-top box users was nearly 300 million, which covered 70% of the total families.
