Quigdao, China is set to become a hotbed of filmmaking excitement -- the Dailan Media Group is launching two major initiatives, creating a studio and media complex as well as a new film festival to be chaired by Rose Kuo. 

The Qingdao International Film Festival, which is set to launch in the fall of 2017, will be overseen by Kuo, the former executive director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center, the organization behind the New York Film Festival. Kuo stepped down from her Film Society post in late 2013. Previously, she was also the Artistic Director of Los Angeles’s AFI Fest.

The Qingdao Oriental Movie Industrial Park will be headed up by Stephen Mensch, who previously served as director of strategic production partnerships and studio operations at Turner Broadcasting. 

The announcement of both CEOs came at the Cannes Film Festival.
